Munich Politics Network

Rapid advances in technology (e.g. robotics, internet of things, social media, digitization, 3D printing, autonomous vehicles) are leading to unprecedented changes in politics, society, and economy. At the same time, shock events in politics (e.g. Brexit vote, election of president Trump, or the rise of populism) question the existing liberal democracies. Against this background, the Munich Politics Network focuses on the interdisciplinary study of disruptions, characterized by major sudden displacements of existing political, economic, societal or technological structures and its rapid substitution by new structures or emerging technologies.

The Munich Politics Network is a global platform and an annual forum for discussions related to challenges in politics and technology. Together with scholars, policy-makers, politicians, business group and civil society representatives, we want to have a dialogue and provide answers related to current challenges.
