  • Statement by the IEG on the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine

    We strongly condemn Vladimir Putin's war of aggression against Ukraine, which is contrary to international law. Our Institute was founded more than 70 years ago to contribute to overcoming Europe's divisions by researching the historical foundations of Europe. During the Cold War, it was, among other things, the venue of the "German-Soviet Historians' Talks". Today it pains us to see that a brutal war is being waged in the heart of Europe.

  • Collaborative Research Center 1482 "Humandifferenzierung" (Human Differentitation)

    How do historical and contemporary societies categorize their members, how do they separate them spatially and thus suggest different social affiliations to them in each case? Since July 1, 2021, the DFG has been funding the SFB 1482 "Human Differentiation" of the JGU Mainz and the IEG. It aims to explicate human differentiation as a form of cultural differentiation and to break down its connection with forms of social and societal differentiation.
