Collaborative Research Center 923: Threatened Order - Societies under Stress

Since 1 August 2011, the Collaborative Research Center 923 “Threatened Order”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), has been investigating the manner in which various social orders (which can structure social groups or entire societies) change when they face threats to their very existence. Some of the professors and staff as well as PhD students of the Institute of Modern History are part of the CRC as researchers and/or project leaders.
