Award-winning Dissertation

Dr. Stefan Stegner, a former staff member of the Institute, was awarded the Munich University Society's Doctoral Award 2018 for his thesis. Under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich Becker, Director at the MPI for Social Law and Social Policy, Stegner analyzed the transformation of German-Polish social security relations in the period from the First World War to the end of the Second World War. He combined historical archive work with social law dogmatics and political science theory. His work, entitled "Zwischen Souveränität und Ökonomie", was recently published by Nomos.
