Closing event SOCLIFE: "Research Across Borders"

International research training group has ended

The international research training group SOCLIFE has ended at the end of 2017 with a closing event. SOCLIFE focused on quantitative cross-national comparisons in the social and economic sciences. The overall research question was how characteristics of individual actors and the national context influence individuals’ attitudes and behavior.

Over the years, altogether thirty-seven doctoral students were supported with 3-year-stipends to undertake an individual research project. Research projects focused on welfare state incentives for maternal labor supply, employment protection legislation and its relation to unemployment, radical right-wing populism, variations in volunteering across societies, or cultural impacts on romantic relationships, to name just a few examples.
