The Institute for Analytical Sociology

Binary Code

The researchers at the Institute for Analytical Sociology (IAS) conduct cutting-edge research on important social, political, and cultural matters. The research at IAS is sociological – in its original and broadly conceived meaning – and the researchers at the IAS come from several academic disciplines.

The interdisciplinary nature of IAS makes it possible for its researchers to make innovative use of methods and analytical tools developed in other disciplines than their own.

Through a combination of statistical analyses of big data bases, detailed micro research, computer simulations, and computer visualizations, the researchers at IAS seek to improve our understanding of important societal processes.
