Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies

The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, a member institute of the Max Planck Society, is devoted to basic research in the social sciences. Its work focuses on the governance of advanced industrial societies in the face of internationalization and economic globalization, in particular on the changing roles and capacities of states and other corporate actors under conditions of international interdependence and supranational integration. From the analytical perspective of an actor-centered institutionalism, projects at the institute assess multilevel and multi-actor processes of decision making, negotiation and coordination, and apply theory modules of evolutionary dynamics as well as political economy. Devoted to international cooperation as the most promising organizational form of comparative research, the Institute gladly welcomes visitors doing research within its area of interest, whom it tries to provide with a working environment that is both productive and pleasant.
