Welcome to the Academy of Sociology!

The mission of the Academy is to promote analytical-empirical sociology. Research conducted under the umbrella of the Academy aims to provide comprehensible analyses of social processes based on precise theories and empirical data. In this way, the Academy as a research community also aims to contribute to scientifically founded, evidence-based social policy.

The Academy promotes the exchange of information in research and teaching and the transfer of analytical-empirical research results to the public. Furthermore, it supports international and interdisciplinary networking in the social sciences, for instance, by organizing small conferences and events to support young scholars.

Membership is open to all social scientists who subscribe to the guiding principles of analytical-empirical sociology. The Academy is open to scholars approaching research from different perspectives, using varying methodological paradigms, and with different research foci.

Thank you very much for your interest!
