Some 200 academics from more than 20 disciplines in the humanities and social sciences belong to the Cluster of Excellence “Religion and Politics”.
The heads of the projects and the project members of the Cluster of Excellence work in some 80 single projects.
Professors from six departments of the University of Münster are involved in research at the Cluster of Excellence.
The Cluster of Excellence maintains a regular exchange with external and international scientists in Münster. The application for a stay needs to be directed at one of the principal investigators.
During the first and second funding phases of the Cluster of Excellence, members of the research association were offered chairs at other universities or accepted positions in other institutions.
The Cluster of Excellence offers the members of the Graduate School and Postdoctoral Programme to independently participate in interdisciplinary research.
The management is responsible for the academic coordination and practical organisation of the Cluster of Excellence.
