Research Programme

The Research Training Group “The Dynamics of Demography, Democratic Processes and Public Policy” (DYNAMICS) provides doctoral researchers with a unique and internationally competitive three-year PhD programme in cutting-edge quantitative methods and advanced theories of demography, democracy and public policy. It is a joint endeavour of the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Hertie School of Governance and funded by the German Research Foundation. From fall 2019, a total of 35 doctoral researchers will study the relationship between demographic change, democratic processes and public policy.

The PhD programme is taught and supervised by leading experts from Political Science, Demography and Public Policy.  PhD students will benefit from the excellent and unique research environment encompassing HU Berlin and the Hertie School, a number of leading research institutions in Berlin as well as from a dense international network including top universities around the world. DYNAMICS fosters interdisciplinary exchange to enable PhD students to conduct innovative research that sheds much needed light on how demographic shifts affect and interact with democratic processes and public policy
