The Institute for Analytical Sociology
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.
The research at IAS is in part financed with generous grants from the European Research Council under the European Union´s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013), the Swedish Research Council and Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
Here is our academic program for spring 2015. We have a seminar series, a workshop series and discussion groups. All events are free and open to all.
