About 70 scientists from 11 institutions are involved in the Collaborative Research Centre, which is headed by the University of Bremen. In 15 subprojects they explore the global dynamics of public social policy. Social policy is defined more comprehensively and also includes education policy as an elementary instrument for promoting equal opportunities.
The analyses which also include the countries of the Global South, focus on cross-border interdependencies: How do trade relations, migration flows, international agreements and capital movements affect social policy actors and their decisions? Only by studying the interplay of national framework conditions and these international interdependencies can socio-political development processes be adequately explained. The CRC will develop a global information system with which the socio-political dynamics can be visualised like an atlas of the world.
