Pieter de Wilde

De Wilde is Senior Researcher in the Department of Global Governance at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB), Germany. He earned his Ph.D. in Political Science at the ARENA Center for European Studies, University of Oslo, Norway. At WZB, he is involved in an interdisciplinary research project entitled The Political Sociology of Cosmopolitanism and Communitarianism, which analyses the emergence of a cleavage within Western societies as a result of globalization.

During his stay at CES, de Wilde will study the implications of this conflict over globalization-related issues for representative democracy. While the study will have a specific focus on Germany, Mexico, Poland, Turkey and the United States, it will also assess parallel dynamics within the European Union and the United Nations.
