Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies

The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Gesellschaftsforschung, MPIfG) is a German social-science research institute within the Max Planck Society located in Cologne.

Established in 1985, it was initially headed by sociologist Renate Mayntz (1985/86), followed by political scientist Fritz W. Scharpf (1986-2003), both of whom exerted a profound influence on the institute's research and public image.[1] Currently directed by Wolfgang Streeck and Jens Beckert, 31 employees and around 20 doctoral and post-doctoral fellows. The research group leaders are Martin Höpner and Sigrid Quack.[2]

Wolfgang Streeck became Director of the Institute in 1995 and remained in this position until his retirement in 2014, becoming Emeritus Director.[3]
