THE NEW INSTITUTE publishes research in the humanities and social sciences.


THE NEW publishes collaborative research in the humanities and social sciences that pushes past mainstream solutions to the nested crises of the present.

Publications in the series offer future-oriented responses along the dimensions of what it means to be human, how to improve democratic self-governance, and how to achieve socio-economic transformation. Our goal is to make humanistic research relevant and accessible to wider audiences. All of our books are published as open access publications by transcript.


Beyond Neoliberalism and Neo-illiberalism – Economic Policies and Performance for Sustainable Democracy

This book offers an exploration of the role of neoliberal economic policies in relation to cultural and political factors in promoting an illiberal backlash against democracy in various countries over the last 15 years.


Through our fellowship programs, we support research and thus publications by individuals and fellow groups.
