As you can see from the bios of the individual members, our interdisciplinary group shares expertise in political theory, in philosophical disciplines such as ethics, philosophy of science and social epistemology, in economics, as well as in sociology and social psychology. Members at the centre collaborate on research programmes that aim to address some of the most urgent questions of our world, such as climate change, fiscal regulation, social and political trust, political participation and sustainable development.
