Research Focus

Ullrich Bauer is professor of socialisation research. He heads the Department of Socialization Research and the Center for Prevention and Intervention in Childhood and Adolescence (CPI) at the Faculty of Educational Science, University of Bielefeld. He is trained in Sociology and Public Health. His former positions were at the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Duisburg-Essen, the School of Public Health, Bielefeld University and the WZB Berlin Social Research Center. Prof. Bauer pursues research questions in health-related socialisation research and education research. This focus comprises especially the topic of socialisation processes with a special consideration of vulnerable groups with limited resources. Research in the area of stress experience and stress consequences in children (6-12 years of age) of mentally ill parents (EEEIPP project), research on the educational careers of adolescents from socially disadvantaged groups (HABIL project), and applied research on developing and evaluating health promotions programs constitute pertinent preparatory works. He also heads the German consortium “Health Literacy in Childhood and Adolescence” HLCA.

 

Key activities are:

  • Basic research on the socialisation of children and adolescents with a particular focus on education and health.
  • Applied research activities related to social, educational and health-related services.
  • Communication, networking and transfer activities targeting e.g. educational institutions at the primary, secondary and tertiary (including second-chance education), as well as profit/non-profit agencies providing child and youth welfare services.
  • The development and implementation of basic, advanced, and vocational training programs for persons who are or want to pursue a profession targeting children, adolescents, and/or young adults.
  • Further Research Activities are requested in the Department of Socialisation Research at Bielefeld University. The research is located in different areas of research addressing the overriding principle of educational inequalities (e.g. the reproduction of educational poor; continuity of reproduction of educational inequalities in different school systems; educational policies and school programns in different welfare-state-arrangements on the unequal distribution of educational capabilities and compositional and contextual factors for upward mobility in case of educational alienation.
