The Research Center Europe (FZE) organizes research projects which deal with the key topic Europe, focusing on aspects of longue durée and challenges of today. The Center offers research initiatives and research groups support concerning the realization of their academic projects and acts as an interdisciplinary platform for the development of new research projects.

In the years 2014-2016, there were two main thematic focuses of research activities at the FZE:

  • Inclusion/Exclusion in the context of social inequality and cultural-religious difference
  • Learning processes and persistence of societies in the face of structural interruptions.
