Welcome at the Forum Internationale Wissenschaft

The Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW), established in 2012, is a central scientific research unit of the University of Bonn. Its research activities examine global function systems of modern society, both with regard to their autonomy and to their growing interconnectedness. Our scientific departments focus on democracy and autocracy as competing regime types in contemporary politics (Comparative Research on Democracies), on the definition and solution of problems in the system of science (Science Studies), and on the different understandings of the world by religious belief systems (Comparative Research on Religions). Based on this research, the FIW also provides a platform for public debate on the changing meanings and conflictual developments of these three global systems of communication.
