WZB Berlin Social Science Center

The WZB Berlin Social Science Center conducts basic research on problems of modern societies in a globalized world. The research is theory-based, problem-oriented, often long-term, and mostly based on international comparisons. Around 200 scientists from various disciplines work together at the WZB, mainly from sociology, political science, economics, and law. Our research areas are dynamics of social inequalities, society, and economic dynamics, international politics and law, dynamics of political systems, migration and diversity, and political economy of development.
