Voluntariness on Air: Our Research on Deutschlandfunk

On February 17, 2022, the German radio station Deutschlandfunk will focus on the topic of voluntariness. Members of our group have the opportunity to talk about our project in the program “Aus Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften”.

On Thursday evening between 8:10 and 9 pm you can listen to what we do within the Resarch Unit on Voluntariness. In snapshot interviews you can get an impression of our projects and hear about the relevance of voluntariness in various debates going on right now.

Tune in on February 17, 2022, at 8:10 pm via Deutschlandfunk or – if you can’t make it – follow the link to the media library.
