Ferdos Forudastan (freelance radio journalist) and Christoph Fleischmann (freelance radio producer, presenter, and author) are at the MPIfG for the next few months as "Journalists in Residence." Up until 2010 Volkswagen had been sponsoring the Journalist in Residence programs in four different research institutes for social science. This program is being continued in 2011 by the MPIfG and the Social Science Research Center in Berlin (WZB). The journalists either accompany ongoing research projects or carry out their own research interests. The aim is to encourage informed reporting of social science topics by bringing together journalists and researchers.
