The Theory Network is a Work Unit that cuts across the four topical Research Units of Borders, Orders, (Re-)Allocation, and Temporalities. Its overall responsibility lies in strengthening the ties between these four Research Units. In order to realize this, the Theory Network serves three purposes. First, it provides for an exchange of theoretical concepts, bridging different epistemological perspectives and theoretical traditions that reflect the plurality of approaches and research questions in SCRIPTS. Second, the Theory Network constitutes the space for individual and collective efforts at theorizing aimed at comparing empirical finding across the Research Units. Third, it seeks to integrate theoretical concepts and conceptions, hypotheses, and findings from across the Cluster’s research projects to advance an empirically grounded theory of contemporary contestations of the liberal script, its causes, and consequences.
