SDG Nexus Network

The SDGnexus Network is a global community of universities, research centers, and stakeholders committed to promoting the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. The SDGnexus Network is a part of the DAAD “Higher Education Excellence in Development Cooperation – exceed” program and, as such, it aims to strengthen higher education for enabling effective and innovative contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

The SDGnexus Network has three main objectives:

  • Establish common research framework through joint research projects between our network partners.
  • Qualify the next generation of scientists as agents of change.
  • Promote exchange and collaboration between our network of higher education institutions and extramural actors.

International Regimes Database

The International Regimes Database (IRD) is a tool designed by a German-American research-team in collaboration with 46 case-study experts who coded 23 international environmental regimes. The database is available on a CD-Rom added to a book by Helmut Breitmeier, Oran R. Young, and Michael Zürn published with The MIT Press in 2006. Another book by Helmut Breitmeier on "The Legitimacy of International Regimes: Findings from The International Regimes Database" has been published in 2008 with Ashgate (Aldershot).

The Transformation Potential of Inter-institutional Arrangements and the Norm of Sustainability in the Global Regime Complex for Food (TANNRE)

The research project “The Transformation Potential of Inter-institutional Arrangements and the Norm of Sustainability in the Global Regime Complex for Food” (TANNRE) analyzes the normative foundations of the global regime complex for food. It focuses on the conditions and regulatory mechanisms for managing fundamental norm conflicts between the norm of sustainability and other food norm concepts such as food security and food sovereignty. The project is located at the Institute of Political Science of Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany. TANNRE is conducted by two Principal Investigators - Prof. Dr. Helmut Breitmeier and Dr. Sandra Schwindenhammer - and three research assistants - Andrés Checa, Jacob Manderbach and Magdalena Tanzer.

Opportunities to use the TOSCANA-System to support theory building in the Political Sciences

One way to analyze correlation between variables included in the IRD is the use of a TOSCANA-system which has been developed by the research team in collaboration with Prof. Rudolf Wille and Tim Kaiser from the Department of Mathematics at Darmstadt University of Technology. The idea of a TOSCANA-system is a result of long experience in data analysis using concept lattices for deeper understanding and proper communication of data. The usage of conceptual scaling combined with computational support yields a powerful analysis tool. The software links the scales from the conceptual file to the database enabling thereby the user of the system to explore the conceptual structure of the data by displaying line diagrams of concept lattices of pieces of the data.
