Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Political Sociology and Social Policy


Research and teaching at the Chair of Political Sociology and Social Policy are concerned with the interaction between politics and society, with a special focus on the modern welfare state. We are particulary invested in the question of how post-industrial transformations of welfare states, labour markest and societies have an impact on aspects of political life.


We have a special interest in the following areas:

  • Social policy
  • Labour market policy
  • family policy
  • Social and political inequality
  • Attitudes towards the welfare state
  • Political parties and voter attachments
  • Political representation and voting behavior
  • Political communication
  • Social movements
  • Political radicalization
  • Deliberative democracy
