Our research and teaching activities focus on three topics.

The measures taken by social security institutions and the effects thereof

We research the impacts, funding systems and benefit-cost ratios of socio-political measures and their effects on social work activities in organisations and daily professional life. 

Interaction between social security institutions

Our focus is on the interfaces between various institutions and support systems. We also look at how these can be efficiently and effectively coordinated to protect people from social risks and their consequences.

Social security in societal transformation

Our interest in this regard is in the interactions between social policy and societal, economic developments. We are particularly interested in the dynamics surrounding poverty risk factors, such as unemployment, family and children, old age, disability and social exclusion.
