Democracy and social change in a global context
The 2017 edition of our annual WZB Report offers institutional news, a list of publications in English as well as a range of articles from the WZB research in 2016 and early 2017. Essays on global governance, migration, economics, social change, digitalization, and democracy showcase the institute’s basic research with relevance for current debates and controversies. One focus is on the new cleavage that has become visible in a number of democratic countries: the divide between the elites and the people, between cosmopolitanism and communitarianism, between winners and losers of globalization.
