Research at the Institute of Sociology Our research deals with the main issues of today's society: changes in the working world, precarity and the inequality of working conditions and opportunities across different sections of the population. As such, our primary focus is on qualitative social research. Our research methods include ethnographic field studies, interpretative interviews, discourse analysis and visual sociology techniques. We also use quantitative methods for researching lifestyle, social recruiting of the student body and inequality of educational opportunities. Another focus of our research is on methodological issues.
