The focus is on investigating the connections between economic, social and political action. Various approaches and research methods are used to investigate how markets and business organizations are embedded in historical, institutional, political and cultural contexts, how they arise and how their social contexts change. The institute builds a bridge between theory and politics and contributes to the political discussion on central questions of modern societies.
