Solidarity in the 21st Century (2009-2013)
This research project concerns the foundations of solidarity. It focuses on investigating formal and informal solidarity in modern society, in particular in relation to ageing and migration. The main research question is whether these societal developments decrease solidarity and threaten the welfare state and under what conditions they can strengthen each other. The project combines different research methods (survey analysis, qualitative research, experiments, and content analysis) to investigate the solidarity between different groups.
