With our blog we give a deeper insight into the world of planpolitik. In somewhat longer texts, for example, we present methods and formats that we like to use or give tips on how to do it yourself. Or we deal in more detail with topics that are currently on our minds. In the "Behind the Scenes" section, we let you in on what's on our minds internally, e.g. on questions like: Why do we do this at all, what drives us? How do we want to work together? What does it mean to work for us? How do we want to position ourselves in the future? What personnel, methodological or thematic innovations are there? We look forward to your comments! Enjoy reading!
