The academic program of the research unit addresses a broad spectrum of issues as social inequality, education, labor market, life course and family and social network research. The teaching is both theoretically and empirically oriented. While only theories provide the conceptual and analytical instruments from which to ground sound scientifically-based descriptions and explanations for societal phenomena and any descriptions and / or explanations of social phenomena must be based on methodologically sound and accurate observations of the social world.
