When we first thought about the contribution to this compendium in February 2020, we intended to look at Volker Schneider’s inauguration speech in 1998 at the University of Konstanz, when he accepted his Lehrstuhl für Materielle Staatstheorie and reflect on how the empirical reality has developed during the last 22 years with regard to his main discussion points. Alas, our world and how we looked at markets, networks and states and their interlinkages turned upside down in just a few days in March 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic, caused by a new Corona Virus, that first appeared in China in December 2019 hit the European states and societies heavily and by complete surprise.
