Institute of Sociology

Understanding society, unlocking perspectives

The guiding principle of our work is to understand society in order to unlock perspectives on social change (institutions, organisations, generations, regional, national and transnational interrelationships). In doing so, we are committed to the standards of modern scientific principles. Our goals are to:

  • Contribute to the understanding of social processes and structures
  • Shape international scientific debate
  • Teach sociology in all of its dimensions based on current scientific debate
  • Foster up-and-coming researchers by giving them the opportunity to conduct research independently and autonomously
  • Introduce sociology findings into public discourse
  • Shape the development of the discipline on university and non-university committees.
