Brokering ideas in social sciences
MaxPo organizes two seminars a month. One is part of the SCOOPS lecture series, and the other, COOPS, focuses on work in progress. The annual MaxPo Lectures feature distinguished speakers and aim to showcase their work. They serve to extend the Center’s reach and encourage dialogue with other disciplines. Luc Boltanski (École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris), Thomas Piketty (Paris School of Economics), Steven Shapin (Harvard University), and Wolfgang Streeck (Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies) promoted discussions of general and specific aspects of contemporary capitalist transformations.
In a long-term partnership, the MPIfG and Sciences Po along with its affiliated institutes (the Centre d’études européennes, CEE, the Centre de sociologie des organisations, CSO, and the Centre d’études de relations internationales, CERI) organize joint conferences in Cologne and Paris on such mutual research topics as economic futures, prediction, and inequality. The joint conferences aim to foster both the exchange of ideas between the two partner institutions and the integration of Franco-German research traditions.
