A Franco-German Center
in the Social Sciences
The Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) was jointly established by Sciences Po Paris and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPIfG) Cologne in 2012.
MaxPo's research will concentrate on investigating how individuals, organizations and nation-states are coping with the new forms of instability that have developed in Western societies during the last forty years as a result of liberalization policies, technological changes and major cultural shifts. It will offer factual and analytical accounts of these shifts and explore their impact on social, political and economic relations.
France and Germany have outstanding research traditions in the social sciences. Close cooperation between the best of German and French social science is key to developing a robust capacity for original research in Europe. The Center thus contributes to the further realization of the European Research Area.
