Research Fields


The Centre for Economic and Sociological Studies is currently organised into four autonomous fields of study. They encompass a variety of separate projects and areas of research. The CESS derives its identity from the mutuality and coherence between different four fields of study:

    • Research field 1: Social-economics of democratic government (res publica)
    • Research field 2: Transformation and involvement
    • Research field 3: Social platform for the metropolitan region of Hamburg: social cohesion and integration
    • Research field 4: Economics
    • Research field 5: Education and further training in everyday life – Hamburg Biography and Personal History Panel
