Themes

New Social Research works with five broad, interconnected thematic areas which address major societal challenges:

  1. Governing complexity
  2. Transformation of agency and empowerment
  3. Changing work
  4. Future of wellbeing
  5. New forms of communication and interaction

As an integrated research agenda, these five thematic focus areas define a field of research which will be proactively and dynamically developed.

From 2018, the second phase of New Social Research will concentrate on Global Governance and responsibility. Here we have four interlinked themes:

  1. Power, authority and governance
  2. The global travel of ideas
  3. Global health and development
  4. Transnational mobility, identities and agency

NSR will integrate itself with the ongoing research activities and existing research centres at the University of Tampere, creating a multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary and university-wide research network and platform that will cohere expertise within and beyond the university. NSR aims to play a significant role in securing the next generation of leading international scholars in this field.
