The Center for Social and Institutional Change (CSIC) is an interdisciplinary research institute at the Faculty of Management and Economics and focuses on social issues at the interface between society, economy and politics. Social issues such as climate change, financial and economic crises, European integration or mass migration are complex phenomena. It is therefore essential to approach these issues from various scientific perspectives in order to be able to comprehend the complexity of major issues and to develop appropriate solutions.
