New research network launched in Chile

From November 2019 until November 2022, the “Socioeconomic Transformations Observatory of the MPIfG in Chile,” headed by Aldo Madariaga (Universidad Mayor, Chile) and Jens Beckert (MPIfG), will be researching current social and political transformations in Europe and Latin America that affect the future economy. The two regions exemplify different dynamics of capitalism and democracy. The research network is a cooperation project between the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies and the Centro de Economía y Políticas Sociales (CEAS) of Universidad Mayor, the Universidad Central de Chile, Universidad Diego Portales, and Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago de Chile. In 2019, the MPIfG and Universidad Central de Chile had already set up a joint international Max Planck Partner Group in Chile. It is headed by Felipe González and investigates the politics of economic expectations in the public sphere, drawing in its research on the fields of economic sociology and communication sciences.
