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).
