- International politics and law
- Dynamics of political systems
- Migration and diversity
- Political economy of development
Around 200 scientists from various disciplines work together at the WZB, mainly from sociology, political science, economics, and law. They are supported by around 170 staff members in administration, IT, scientific information & data, and communication and by almost 90 student assistants.
Research results are published for the scientific community as well as for experts in politics, business, the media and civic organizations.
