Heterogeneity and Cohesion

The research network “Heterogenität und Kohäsion” (Heterogeneity and Cohesion) focuses on socio-cultural manifestations, causes and consequences of progressing social differentiation, and how under such circumstances social order is constructed. Life styles and living conditions in contemporary society are determined by high levels of fragmentation, individualization and diversity. Thus, questions of social cohesion, especially legal and social aspects, are of utmost concern. By taking into account social, institutional, ideological and religious foundations of social integration, this research network analyzes migration processes, questions of ethnic and cultural diversity, changes in gender and generational relations, new and old social inequalities and accompanying conflicts. Historical and intercultural perspectives are particularly relevant.
