Kooperationsparter*innen Cluster Scripts
In the Cluster "Contestations of the Liberal Script (SCRIPTS)," current debates about the liberal order are examined from a historical, global, and comparative perspective. SCRIPTS has therefore developed institutional partnerships with universities in all world regions. At the same time, the initiative focuses on close collaboration with practical institutions in politics and culture in the German capital. From the outset, SCRIPTS sees itself not only as part of a global research network but also as a hub for public discourse on current crisis phenomena in liberal democracy.
