Welcome to my website! My name is Swen Hutter, and I am interested in the changing dynamics and structuration of political conflict in contemporary democracies. In particular, I am interested in how social movements and political parties interact in articulating and mobilizing new societal divides. I have the pleasure to teach political sociology at Freie Universität Berlin and to be Vice Director of the Center for Civil Society Research, a joint initiative of Freie Universität and the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.
On this website, you find information on my current projects, publications, and my institutional affiliations.
