Speaker Series

Munich Talks.

In 2017, I established the speaker series Munich Talks to examine the interactions among politics, the economy, society, and technology, seeking a multi- and transdisciplinary social scientific understanding of these interactions. Munich Talks puts the spotlight on political challenges and examining solution strategies and provides a place of meeting for political science, political education and political practice. High-ranking scientists, well-known politicians and policymakers analyze current political developments and decision-making processes in political practice, making politics and political science a tangible experience for the general public.

Annual Conference

Munich Politics Network.

The Munich Politics Network is a global platform and an annual forum for discussions related to challenges in politics and technology. Together with scholars, policy-makers, politicians, business group and civil society representatives, we want to have a dialogue and provide answers related to current challenges. Rapid advances in technology (e.g. robotics, internet of things, social media, digitization, 3D printing, autonomous vehicles) are leading to unprecedented changes in politics, society, and economy. At the same time, shock events in politics (e.g. Brexit vote or the rise of populism) question the existing liberal democracies. Against this background, the Munich Politics Network was established in 2018 to focus on the interdisciplinary study of disruptions, characterized by major sudden displacements of existing political, economic, societal or technological structures and its rapid substitution by new structures or emerging technologies.
