Global and Transnational Sociology at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is focused on broadening the sociological imagination beyond the national borders of most sociological theories and empirical data to generate new understandings of cross-border social interactions and interrelations.

UDE’s Institute of Sociology (Campus Duisburg) includes a number of scholars engaged in studies of work and employment, social structural change, comparative and transnational sociology. Professors teaching at the Summer School are also members of the Institute of Work, Skills and Training and the Institute of East Asian Studies in Duisburg.
