Welcome!

My name is Swen Hutter and I am Lichtenberg-Professor in Political Sociology at Freie Universität Berlin. Moreover, I am Vice Director of the Center for Civil Society Research in Berlin, a joint initiative of Freie Universität and the Berlin Social Science Research Center WZB.

Soon, I'll update my contact details and the rest of this website!

Before coming to Berlin, I have been a post-doctoral research fellow at the European University Institute in the ERC project "Political Conflict in Europe in the Shadow of the Great Recession" (POLCON).

My main research interests include political conflict, social movements, political parties, participation and cleavage structures.
