Academic background


The ideas behind Social Science Works are inspired by the contemporary debates within political science and sociology on the current states of these disciplines and the changes that according to a growing number of scholars are needed. For a critical examination of these debates see our position paper: 

Blokland, Hans. 2015. Creating Useable Knowledge for Tomorrow’s Democratic Societies: The Academic Background of Social Science Works. Potsdam: Social Science Works.
