Most of the research carried out at the Dept. of Politics of the JFK Institute studies contemporary developments in American and German social and urban politics. A variety of comparative projects look at problems in labor market and welfare reform, the social and informal economy, the role of the local in recent state restructuring. Cities are studied both as laboratories where many of the policy innovations are explored, and as major players in the contemporary search for new forms of regulation and new ways of growth.
