Dr. Heiko Beyer is a political sociologist with interests in sociological and social-psychological theories as well as in problems of empirical research methodology. His previous work particularly focused on the social incentive structure of resentments and discrimination vis-à-vis the acceleration of social change and related disintegration processes. Furthermore he has pushed forward empirical research on those phenomena by applying new methodological tools. At the moment he is working on his habilitation in which he deals with the dark side of the emerging transnational civil sphere and new cosmopolitanism's particularism.

Heiko received his Magister in Sociology, Philosophy and Cultural Studies from the University of Leipzig in 2009 (grade: 1.0, with distinction) and his doctorate degree in Sociology from the University of Göttingen in 2013 (grade: summa cum laude). He was a Fulbright visiting scholar at University of Michigan's Department of Political Science in 2012.
