This year, SFB 700 again had the privilege of working with a group of renowned guest scholars who researched various topics along with us.

Already in January and into February of this year, we were able to welcome Christian Neuhäuser of the Technical University Dortmund as a Mercator Fellow at SFB. Mr. Neuhäuser researches the moral responsibility of private actors in areas of limited statehood. Under a title of this same description, he presented his work as part of our SFB lecture series. A video clip of his presentation is available here.

As another Mercator Fellow and regular guest, we were pleased to once again be able to welcome Stephen D. Krasner of Stanford University in May and June. Stephen Krasner continued his research on external governance actors and state-building initiatives at SFB. Also a Mercator fellow, Julia Eckert of Bern University strengthened the work of the SFB in June and July with her expertise in legal anthropology concerning the study of the transnationalization of legal norms, conflict theory, and the anthropology of modern states. As the fourth guest, we welcomed Aila Matanock of UC Berkeley to Berlin in June. In dialogue with the SFB, she studies external governance actors and questions of their legitimacy.

We would like to sincerely thank all guest scholars for the fruitful collaboration and beneficial exchange!
