The programme “Trajectories of Change” published five calls for applications in the past years and concentrated on following themes:
2014 A New Social Contract? Reshaping State and Society
2015 The State of the State: Organizing Power, Authority and Legitimacy
2016 Contestation Past and Present: Institutions, Processes and Orders
2017 Reshaping the Public Sphere
2018 Transnational and Regional Dynamics
The fellows’ network resulting from “Trajectories of Change” stands both for deep and novel insights on these regions and offers a vast scope of empirical data from field work in different locations. It also contributes to theoretical reflexions on social change and resilience and diverse aspects of transformation, paying attention particularly to transnational perspectives.
