Andreas Schäfer is a research associate in the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt University of Berlin, where he also received his Ph.D. in political science in 2015. His research interests lie at the intersection of political communication and democratic decision-making. In this field, he combines perspectives and issues of democratic theory, political sociology and comparative politics.
At the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES), Schäfer will explore the question of what role remembering plays in political decision-making, especially when under time constraints. Empirically, he will examine this question using recent cases of crisis in Europe.
