Aus der Soziologie

International survey on the Public Role of Sociology in the world today

The purpose of this study is to understand how sociology graduates and sociologists who work within (or with) universities are currently engaging with the wider public, including private industry, various levels of government, the NGO/charity sector and the media.

This important work will help us take stock of the state of sociology today and the challenges and opportunities we will face as sociologists tomorrow. It will help establish sociology’s public profile, activities, influence, and barriers to wider engagement, and assist in the development of long-term strategies for sociologists and sociological organisations around the world to expand their public engagement.
