Prof. Dr. Mathias Albert
Professor Mathias Albert, University of Bielefeld, was a guest of the research unit Transnational Conflicts and International Institutions (TKI), where he resided from November 2010 to April 2011. His current main research interests are in the areas of world society theory/theory of international relations as well as in youth research. During his stay in Berlin, he worked on an edited volume edited by himself, Michael Zürn (WZB), and Barry Buzan (London School of Economics). He also devoted some of his time to a second project, a monograph, dealing with the evolution of “international” politics and policy, and “world politics” since the 19th century, as an expression of differentiation, as well as the evolution of the political systems of the world society.
