About Christoph Haug

Christoph Haug is currently doing research on collaboration in face-to-face meetings. He is also the founder of Kunsido, an online forum about meetings and meeting research.

Between from 2015 to 2017 he was a Marie-Curie Research Fellow at currently a Marie-Curie Fellow at the Department of Communication at the University of Montreal and at the Gothenburg Research Institute. In May 2017 he organized the Gothenburg Meeting Science Symposium.

He wrote his doctoral thesis about “Discursive Decision-making in Meetings of the Global Justice Movement: Cultures and Practices” at the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB) and at Freie Universität Berlin and then accepted a post-doc Position at the Department of Sociology to study “the politics of the poor” in and around South African shack settlements. He also collaborated with Håkan Thörn, Maj-Lis Follér and Beniamin Knutsson in a Sida-funded project entitled “Governing AIDS through aid to civil society: Global solutions meet local problems in Sub-Saharan Africa”
Specialist Fields

Christoph’s research is situated in three fields of study: social movements, globalization, and organization. He approaches these broad phenomena through the lens of communication and discourse (both mediated and face-to-face). His particular interest is in the detailed analysis of social interaction and how these relate to broader and more durable phenomena.

Coming from the field of Media and Communication Studies (where he received his MA in 2003), Christoph has always been interested in the phenomenon of public opinion, public discourse and the public sphere. In his doctoral thesis, he explored the formation of "consensus" in face-to-face meetings and found meetings to be a thrilling subject on which he continues to specialize. Christoph is also interested in social movements and the transnationalization of civil society. His theoretical background is diverse, but he is particularly fond of practice theory, interactionism, and "Communication as constitutive of organization" (CCO) and anything that helps to grasp the micropolitics of everyday life. While his own research is currently mainly qualitative, Christoph was originally trained in quantitative research methods (teaching statistics for several years) and is still interested in mixed methods.
