Our research is focused on social policy, welfare, inequality, and the labour market. Our researchers are scholars primarily in the fields of economics and sociology.
The research at SOFI is organised in three units: Labourmarket Economics, Stratification and the Level of living, and Social Policy. In many research projects we cooperate across these units and across disciplines. The PhD candidates at SOFI are enrolled in the PhD programmes at the Department of Economics or Department of Sociology.
