The Cluster of Excellence „Contestations of the Liberal Script” (SCRIPTS) analyzes the contemporary controversies about the liberal order from a historical, global, and comparative perspective. It connects the academic expertise in the social sciences and humanities as well as area studies in Berlin, collaborates with research institutions in all world regions, and maintains cooperative ties with major political, cultural and social institutions. The Cluster’s research programme is structured around four Research Units (RUs): Borders, Orders, (Re-)Allocation and Temporality. The RU Orders investigates contestations of the liberal script with regard to state and civil society structuresand discourses, rights, and political procedures. As postdoctoral research fellow of the RUOrders, you conduct your own research in these fields in an interdisciplinary context. By collaborating with SCRIPTS’ Theory Network, you will simultaneously have a central role for the RU Orders’ contribution to the Cluster’s theory development.
