Is the genuine link doctrine still a good law for assessing membership? And what is the meaning of a genuine link in a globalized world? This event, which is dedicated to the work of Rainer Bauböck, addresses these and further questions about citizenship and belonging in a panel discussion and subsequent lecture.

Discussion and book presentation with Jan Zielonka and Michael Zürn

Description

Populist parties effectively challenge democracy, European integration, and international order. At the same time, authoritarian states openly challenge liberal values. Counter-revolutions and counter-institutionalizations abound. Does this herald the end of the liberal world as we know it? Is Europe disintegrating? How can the resistance to the global governance be explained? Is there a way to overcome the multiple crises?

Description

Wie veränderungsfähig sind die Deutschen angesichts der Herausforderungen, vor denen das Land steht? Die fortschreitende Digitalisierung, die nötige Integration geflüchteter Menschen oder die unsichere weltpolitische Lage erfordern große Veränderungskompetenz – doch wie stark ist sie vorhanden? Und was brauchen die Menschen, um sich auf Veränderungen vorzubereiten?

Panel discussion
Description

Advocates of the platform economy present it as a new way of organizing work and value creation and as a fundamental and efficient alternative to the “old economy”. Traditional workplaces and employment are replaced by platforms organizing crowds of formally independent freelancers. There are huge platforms like Upwork which organize markets for freelancers in a large number of sectors. There are dedicated platforms which focus on specific markets. Companies like Uber or Deliveroo, for instance, offer mobility and transport services and compete with traditional transport providers.

Lecture by Hiroshi Motomura, Susan Westerberg Prager Professor of Law at the School of Law, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
Description


People move, and governments react. Do these government decisions make sense? This question prompts even bigger ones, and not just about migration. The reasons for migration are part of a thick web of issues; understanding this broader framework is essential for finding effective responses. Four questions are especially important.

Offener Expertenworkshop Interdisziplinarität
Description

Der Experten-Workshop wird das Spannungsverhältnis beleuchten, das durch Interdisziplinarität begründet wird: Auf der einen Seite gibt es aufgrund gesellschaftlicher Entwicklungen (‚grand challenges‘) die wissenschaftspolitische Forderung, zunehmend interdisziplinär zu forschen; auf der anderen Seite kollidiert diese Forschungspraxis mit Anforderungen disziplinärer Reputationssysteme, die Interdisziplinarität wenig belohnen. Wie ist es möglich, Interdisziplinarität als eine gelingende und die Disziplinarität ergänzende Struktur aufzubauen?

Lecture within the MAD Colloquium series by Mark Brandt
Description

What is the basic structure of belief systems? Clear answers to this fundamental question are not forthcoming. This is because we typically treat a belief system as a theoretical latent variable that causes people’s responses on attitudes and identities relevant to the belief system.

Lecture by Will Davies
Description

Contemporary populism is often viewed as a rebellion against globalisation, and hence neoliberalism. At the same time, populists are accused by orthodox policy-makers of lacking economic credibility or rationality, and offering emotional, ‚post-truth‘ politics. By this account, populism is a wholly irrational and impulsive phenomenon, that attacks economic rationality. This lecture will seek to present things differently, by considering ways in which contemporary populism perpetuates certain aspects of capitalist and neoliberal reason.

WZB Big Data Brown Bag Seminar with Nina Baur
Description

Auch wenn prozessproduzierte Massendaten (sogenannte „Big Data“) etwa in Form von staatlichen Verwaltungsdaten eine mehr als zweihundertjährige Tradition haben, hat sich deren Verfügbarkeit in den letzten Jahrzehnten dramatisch gesteigert: Nicht nur die Forschungsdatenzentren, sondern auch historische Datenarchive und eine Vielzahl universitärer Projekte arbeiten daran, bisher unerschlossene alte Datensammlungen ebenso wie neue digitale Daten zunehmend für die Forschung zugänglich zu machen.

Den Auslöser dieser Aktivitäten bildeten die vor allem in den USA erkennbaren Versuche, wissenschaftliche Freiheiten und Infrastrukturen aus politischen Gründen zu beschneiden und „alternative Fakten“ zu behaupten.

Lecture within the WZB series "Achtung: Demokratie" by John Keane
Description

There are many signs that we have entered a ‘post-truth’ era defined by the burial of ‘objective facts’ thanks to a public avalanche of ‘appeals to emotion and personal belief’, as the Oxford English Dictionary states. Critics of this ‘post-truth’ trend like to stress the political dangers of growing government secrecy, the lies of politicians, corporate bullshit, media silence, and populists’ talk of ‘fake news’. They call for a recovery of ‘truth’ in public life.
