The German-French Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) has succeeded in recruiting two outstanding international scholars for its faculty, the sociologist Marion Fourcade and the political scientist Cornelia Woll. Professor Fourcade and Dr. Woll will each head a research group at the center as of fall 2012 and be instrumental in launching the center’s research program. Run jointly by Sciences Po in Paris and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, MaxPo concentrates on investigating how individuals, organizations and politics are coping with the increased instability that has developed in Western societies during the last forty years. The center is located in Paris.
