Who we are?
Social Identity Research gathers a group of social and humanistic scholars, researchers, and practitioners with the common interest in studying social identity. The goal of the organisation is to provide a free venue for thinking, searching, networking, writing and publishing, and forming joint interdisciplinary research connections in order to improve the quality and scope of social identity studies. Coming from the academic, independent researchers, and NGO sector the members are able to approach social identity issues from the standpoints of their various disciplines and abilities, thus providing an interdisciplinary input to improve the analytical value of their studies.
The Social Identity Research is a non-profit organisation, directed at the applicable social, and cultural scientific studying of the influences of the various factors of the identity building, from which pedagogic, social work, politic could benefit for actionable results. For those purposes, we are placing the most significance to researching the cultural origins (including the scope of geographical and cultural origin, socio-cultural and socio-economic background, media usage, education, family, peer groups, migration history etc.) and identity development.
The goal of the organisation is to prepare research projects that are scientific, actionable, and relevant for praxis, and funded through donations or funded research contracts.
