BACKGROUND

Formerly, Peter was a researcher and lecturer at the Universities of Dortmund, Hagen and D√ľsseldorf, carrying out at the latter two the project ‚ÄėLaw as a social practice‚ÄĒfrom everyday legal methods to a legal methodology for everyday work‚Äô (2000‚Äď2004). After this, he worked as a lecturer and researcher in criminal and police sociology at the Ruhr University of Bochum, focusing especially on public security institutions (2004‚Äď2006). From 2007 to 2009 he held a post-doc position at the Centre for Society and Genomics, Radboud University Nijmegen. There, in the form of an institutional ethnography, he investigated how ‚Äúsociety and genomics‚ÄĚ research, education and dialogue activities (sometimes called ‚ÄėELSA‚Äô or ‚ÄėELSI‚Äô for ethical, legal, social aspects/implications) in the Netherlands and in the United Kingdom get conceptualized and organized, institutionalized and legitimized in everyday work‚ÄĒas science governance in action. Writing things up is still in progress though ...

Peter Stegmaier studied sociology, social psychology, law, and economics at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and at Goldsmiths’ College in London.
