Current Research Projects

The main topics of the theory-driven empirical social research that the staff of the Chair of General Sociology is involved in are current and socially relevant questions on the migration and integration of ethnic minorities, families, the labor market, and education. The research itself is connected to the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research, where all research projects are based.
