Ulrich Franke

is a lecturer in the Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences at the University of Erfurt. He studied political science, sociology and economics at Frankfurt’s Goethe University (1997-2003), received a doctorate from the University of St. Gallen (2008) and the venia legendi for political science from the University of Bremen (2017). Inspired by the philosophy and social theory of classical pragmatism and guided by reconstructive methods such as objective hermeneutics, Ulrich examines the rules for action that constitute world politics, be it Germany’s, NATO’s, BioNTech’s, or FIFA’s.
