SCRIPTS examines contemporary struggles over the model of liberal democracy and market economy from historical, global, and comparative perspectives. It combines the expertise available in Berlin in the social sciences and regional studies, and collaborates with research institutions in all regions of the world and practical institutions from politics, culture and society.
