Forschungsgruppe der Präsidentin
David Ausserhofer
Main content

Our research focuses on the areas of education, family and gainful employment. In each case, the changes and their effects on the life courses of people of different ages are examined.

There are three main areas of focus:

  • education and labor market research, which focuses, among other things, on the interplay between formal certificates, qualifications, and skills upgrading
  • research on social inequality and segregation, especially in the context of gender, social origin, life plan, and course of life
  • research policy, such as interdisciplinarity, which evolve directly from the President's institutional responsibilities and her activities in research management.

The research group of the president also includes the work area on constitutional law, educational law and sociology of law of Prof. Dr. Michael Wrase. Research in this area focuses on issues of fundamental and human rights, rights mobilization and access to justice, anti-discrimination law, and regulation and governance in education.

Further information about the ongoing and completed projects of the President's Research Group can be found in more detail here.
