Abstract: 

The work with this report underlines the general need for collective self-reflection in a time of cognitive and societal change. Traditionally the state has transformed its norms with help of legislation and judicial decisions. In the current situation, however, this is not sufficient. It is increasingly necessary to identify the vague value-based structures and immanent and informal powers of the late modern society.
