International Partners

International Partners

International cooperation is crucial given the transnational character of research in economic sociology, comparative and international political economy, and organization studies. Our doctoral program gives students the opportunity to spend four months at a North American, French, or Italian partner institution or another academic institution abroad in order to gain international experience and develop their work in an international context. The IMPRS-SPCE also hosts visiting doctoral students from abroad, which expands its own students’ intercultural skills and professional networks. Public lectures by internationally renowned scholars enhance the program.
