Research carried out in the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (SSP) includes theoretical and empirical subjects, relevant both in a fundamental sense and in terms of applications.

These different projects focus on the study of the complexity and challenges of contemporary life, in their historical, sociological, political, cultural, anthropological and psychological aspects. They rely on varied disciplinary perspectives and paradigms, with a view to significantly improving the quality of life in all its psychological, social, cultural, political and environmental dimensions. Partners in social and political sciences research are manifold at a local, national and international level, underlining its significant impact on key issues affecting our society.


The Faculty of Social and Political Sciences maintains close relations with the NCCR – LIVES and FORS, which are both hosted by the University of Lausanne:
