Welcome to the DFG Research Unit “Law – Gender – Collectivity”

Our interdisciplinary Research Unit has been active since January 2018. It brings together scholars of law, sociologists, European ethnologists and historians from the three major Berlin universities, the University of Potsdam and the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Read more…

The Research Unit consists of six sub-projects and a coordinating project. In every sub-project, a team investigates a particular empirical research field. In our second funding phase (2021-2024), these are environmental law and climate litigation (A), transnational labor conflicts (B), urban & housing commons (C), consumer protection (D), processes of infrastructurization (E), and human rights, queer genders and sexualities since the 1970s (F).


#indivisible thinking - a public think tank

March 19, 2019, Start: 7 p.m. | Admission from 6 p.m.
HAU1, Hebbel am Ufer, Stresemannstraße 29, 10963 Berlin.

On October 13, 2018, a quarter of a million people followed the call #unteilbar in Berlin and set an impressive sign for a solidary society. They showed that civil society stands together in the face of disarmed times, growing hatred and political authoritarianism - despite different perspectives and starting points.

The #unteilbar alliance, Sabine Hark (Wir Machen Das) and HAU Hebbel am Ufer invite to a series of public think tanks that are meant to initiate a process of reflection on potentials of "#unteilbar policies" and possible alliances. At a round table, actors from the #indivisible spectrum will discuss - openly, controversially and constructively. The event will kick off with a discussion on "difficult solidarities". After a keynote speech by Sabine Hark, the following will speak:

Max Czollek ("Disintegrate yourselves!"),
Sharon Dodua Otoo (author/Ingeborg Bachmann Prize winner),
Uwe Meinhardt (IG Metall, Basic Issues and Social Policy at the Executive Board),
Anna Stiede (Women*strike),
Koray Yılmaz-Günay (Brandenburg Refugee Council and Berlin-Brandenburg Migration Council)
with Margarita Tsomou, curator HAU Hebbel am Ufer, and Sabine Hark about possibilities and difficulties of solidary action.
The event will be livestreamed on the website of HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
