Research content

Our work is at the crossroads of professional, critical, public and user-oriented policy sociology and focuses on the interweaving of individual lives, social processes and historical change. Our goal is the growth and deepening of an already large and vibrant community of scholars, active across a wide range of specialisms in sociology. We aim to be intellectually innovative, flexible, inclusive, enabling and capacity-building. We foster intellectual diversity rather than impose homogeneity.
