Our research interests relate to the inequality-theoretical analysis of changes in social structures, with a special emphasis on the consideration of factors influencing the welfare state.
Research is focused in particular in the following areas:
- Poverty and marginalization (Böhnke, Esche, Link, Wolf)
- Social capital, social networks, participation (Böhnke, Link)
- Life satisfaction, quality of life, subjective well-being (Böhnke, Esche, Wolf)
- Labor market integration and precariousness (Böhnke, Link)
