Björn Scheffler


Björn has been working at Das Progressive Zentrum since April 2022, where he assists the Policy Advisor. He studies political science and sociology at the Humboldt University in Berlin, where he is particularly interested in identities, inequalities and negotiation processes that arise within immigration societies. Above all, however, it was the linking of democratic challenges, long-term socio-political developments, and questions of political theory that moved Björn to work at Das Progressive Zentrum. Previously, Björn gained experience as a project assistant in the department ‘Future of Democracy’ and as a student assistant at the chair for Migration and Gender (HU-Berlin), where he primarily worked on quantitative intersectional research.
