PPE Young Scholars Award 2022 for Björn Bremer
Björn Bremer received the PPE Young Scholars Award of the PPE Institute for Social and Institutional Change (ISIC) of Witten/Herdecke University in November 2022. The 1000-euro prize is awarded to early career researchers under the age of 35 who work at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics and thereby contribute to a better understanding of social and institutional change processes. Bremer focuses in his work on the political processes that underlie economic and political decisions. He completed his doctorate, “Austerity from the Left? Explaining the Fiscal Policies of Social Democratic Parties in Response to the Great Recession,” at the European University Institute and has been a senior researcher at the MPIfG since 2019.
