The comparative analysis of the processes of social change has been at the centre of the research conducted by the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle an der Saale since 1999. Within the context of field research in many countries and different global contexts, the researchers analyse politically sensitive issues that are often in the public spotlight. The work of the departments “Integration and Conflict” and “Socialist and Postsocialist Eurasia” and the project group “Legal Pluralism” focus on questions of ethnicity and identity, conflict management, religion and civil society, as well as different legal approaches, the management of natural resources, transnational migration, and the changing role of the state and the family in social security systems.
