The doctoral programme of Politics and Society is an interdisciplinary training programme for PhD students who undertake research relating to society, state and globalisation in a contemporary or historical perspective. Using a variety of analytical approaches and theories from the social sciences and the humanities, the PhD students’ research focuses on cultural, political and socio-economic developments at the local, national, transnational and global level; research themes include changes in economic, political, social and administrative systems, international affairs as well as state-market-civil society relations, gender, identities, mobility and displacement.
