Students acquire the ability to explain theories and analyses of development and transfor-mation of social institutions – in particular, institutions in terms of politics, market and civil society. They know how to analyse the effects and interactions of these institutions in socie-ties. Students know central social scientific discussions, terms and methods to analyse mar-ket, state and social institutions and organizations.

In capitalist societies the relationship between state, market/economy and other social institutions constitutes a crucial dimension of social conflicts and dynamics.

Therefore, these conflictive and contested relations form an important field of politics, on which social relations of power and dominance (intersectionality) are constituted as well as the common good and the res publica deliberated. The conflicts about the retrenchment and the rebuilding of welfare states to renew the dynamic of the economy as they have been fostered by neoliberal reform projects as an answer to economic and political crisis tendencies since the 1980s reveal this in a striking way. The dominance of financial markets, which is the result of far-reaching deregulations and liberalisations of markets has led to fundamental transformations and adaptions of capitalist “stateness” and exposes social institutions to marketisation. Therefore, recent crisis tendencies are also crisis of the relations between state/politics, market/economy and other social institutions. In this PS we will discuss concepts and theories about the state/politics, the economy/market and other social institutions as well as their relations and constitutive interdependence. Furthermore we will discuss selected debates and analyses about recent developments and transformations of the state, markets/economies and social institutions.
