Our research

We study social problems, and their causes and their consequences for individuals, groups, and societies.

Studies in social work focuses on potentially vulnerable individuals and groups, and their living conditions. Furthermore, social work is also focusing on social interventions, social policy and social processes. We, at our department, have about 80 junior and senior social scientists, who are conducting research with different theoretical and methodological perspectives. Our research projects, are diverse. For example, we are conducting research projects in the area of children and family, poverty, addiction, disability, and professions and organisations.
