Something New More Often: The electorate of the new left-conservative party BSW

Results from a representative survey

The party “Bündnis Sahra Wagenknecht - Vernunft und Gerechtigkeit” (Sahra Wagenknecht Alliance: Reason and Justice), founded in January 2024, is already attracting a sizeable electorate. Representative results are now available on the attitudes of those who intend to vote for the BSW in a Bundestag election. They are somewhat more likely to be between 41 and 60 years old. In East Germany the party is considerably more successful. In terms of immigration policy, they want more restrictions. When deciding between climate protection and economic growth, they are more in favor of economic growth.

Synergies of Blockchain and AI

Improving Europe’s Digital Sovereignty

The approach focuses on three main components: the optimization of digital infrastructures and data management, the support of companies, especially start-ups and SMEs, and the development and use of innovative data marketplaces.’ Potential use cases include healthcare, urban development, and industry.

Mandatory counseling in pregnancy conflicts

Protection for everyone involved

Advocates of liberalizing abortion in Germany are calling for the abolition of mandatory pregnancy conflict counselling. However, current regulations and the experience of counselors show that mandatory counseling is the best way to do justice to the ethical, legal and psychosocial dimensions of this conflict.

The more, the mightier?

Why human capital counts in order to assert oneself in the global power structure

Population size has always played an important role in the rise of states to great powers. Now the populations of more and more countries around the world are shrinking and ageing. Does this herald a loss of power on the global stage, and does population growth go hand in hand with an increase in a country's importance? The analysis of economic, security policy and social factors in middle and great powers sheds light on the connections between demographic change, national strategies and the global power structure.

Are tariffs of all things the salvation of free trade?

We can talk about selective tariffs – but not about protective tariffs

Free world trade is being jeopardised by subsidies. The right response to this is not new subsidies, but selective tariffs in rare exceptional cases: Behind concerns about the effects of economic dependencies, the benefits of open world trade are increasingly being eclipsed. There may be situations in which trade policy dependencies – for example in the case of rare earths – can be mitigated by state intervention. Subsidies to build up own production capacities are significantly less efficient, more expensive and undermine the market principle.

Added value through immersive technologies

Application scenarios for XR technologies in business and society

Extended reality can create added value. The use of immersive technologies can reduce the consumption of resources, increase efficiency and enhance visualisation in a wide range of usage contexts. Our publication shows how this is already happening in industry, education, urban planning, healthcare and culture. In order for Germany to develop and utilise XR technologies, access to virtual environments must be facilitated, skills must be developed and access to the relevant data must be promoted.

The influence of Deep Fakes on Elections

Legitimate Concern or Mere Alarmism?

In the upcoming 2024 super election year, AI-driven deep fakes pose a great threat to electoral integrity worldwide. From Slovakia to the US and Turkey, manipulated audio, image or video files blur reality and erode trust of the public in available information. Combatting deep fakes demands urgent action: robust defense strategies, cyberliteracy initiatives, and ethical guidelines for the use of AI in political communication are crucial to preserve the integrity of democratic processes.

„Just not that the constitution protection authorities ring my doorbell“

The spread of right-wing and left-wing extremist attitudes in Germany

This study uses a representative survey to analyse three questions: How widespread are attitudes that belong to general extremism or to left-wing or right-wing extremist ideology? How many people support ideas from several extremisms? To what extent do attitudes close to one extremism occur together with other attitudes (including trust in institutions, anti-Zionism and conspiracy theory)?
