Centre for Social Psychology

  • Centre for Social Psychology

Centre for Social Psychology deals with the analysis of the social inter-space between macro-sociological structures and institutions and practices that belong to the micro-sphere of everyday life. The research programme of the Centre includes the study of family life, life styles and identity formation, as well as bio-politics such as health, body and sexuality, and is oriented towards the study of specific social groups and minorities that are subjected to social exclusion, discrimination and marginalisation (youth, women, sexual minorities...). The methodological approach combines fundamental theoretical and empirical studies of target populations since the early 1990s. The work of the Centre has an impact on governmental and non-governmental organisations and policies (such as family, youth and health policies).
