Marius Busemeyer, Professor of Political Science and Speaker of the Cluster of Excellence "The Politics of Inequality" at the University of Konstanz, has been a member of the scientific advisory board of the Berlin think tank "Das Progressive Zentrum (DPZ)" since May 2023. The independent and non-profit think tank provides impetus for social progress through publications, studies and events. The DPZ aims to create new networks for progressive actors from different contexts and to make policies for economic and social progress capable of gaining majority support.
The DPZ is also a close cooperation partner of the Cluster of Excellence in the publication of its Policy Paper series. In this series, the Cluster offers practice-oriented information and policy recommendations on topics of inequality research. The cooperation between the DPZ and the Cluster of Excellence thus offers the opportunity to build a bridge between science and political practice.
