Research

Research Scope

We research contemporary social phenomena and respond to the rapidly changing world, therefore, the results of our research help local governments align public policies with current needs, improve the quality of life in their regions and the whole country.

For example, Gov_LAB is a unique educational initiative developed for local governments to help them design services and effective support tools for local entrepreneurs and investors, while the I-Trend project provided data on the use and perception of psychoactive substances by Polish youth. The project resulted in the development of the so-called “Technical Folder” that showed the technical, epidemiological, psycho-social and political implications of the use of designer drugs, for individuals and communities.

We also conduct studies on the attitude of Poles towards the European Union, social migrations, belonging, and social participation. A team of researchers participating in an international project “CEEYouth” aims to identify different types of post-Brexit risks encountered by young migrants from Poland and Lithuania living in Great Britain, and the impact of Brexit on their life trajectories.

Research Projects

A History of Rwanda

Learn more

Surprisingly, a comprehensive history of Rwanda has not been written until now, partly due to the fact that many historical documents and sources are scattered around the world, for example in Belgium, Germany, Tanzania, Italy and the United States. The project led by Professor Klaus Bachmann remedies this situation by bringing the first comprehensive history of Rwanda, written in English, to readers around the world.

A typology of the relations between non-governmental organizations in Poland

Learn more

A close working relationship between NGOs, including knowledge and best practice sharing as well as common planning and project development, supports the growth of the third sector in economy. A research team, lead by Agnieszka Kaim, will examine the relationships between 30 selected NGOs and the overall condition of the NGO sector in Poland.

CEEYouth: The comparative study of Poles and Lithuanians in the context of Brexit

Learn more

Since the 2004 European Union's enlargement, the mobility of young Poles and Lithuanians has significantly increased. For many of them, Great Britain has become a new home. The situation suddenly changed in June 2016, when the Brexit Referendum results were announced. Researchers from SWPS University and from the Public Policy and Management Institute in Lithuania will research the types of risks that young migrants from Poland and Lithuania may face as a result of Great Britain leaving the EU.

GEMTRA: Transition to Motherhood
Across 3 Generations of Women

Learn more

“It takes a whole village to raise a child,” in Poland this “village” means exclusively women. Although, times are changing, and with them the meaning of parenthood changes too, society is still convinced that it is the mother’s responsibility to raise a child and prepare it to live in a society. Besides personal and social expectations, there is also the reality of motherhood and intergenerational relations between mothers. Researchers from SWPS University will study the process of transition to motherhood through the eyes of three generations of Polish mothers: first-time expecting mothers, their mothers and grandmothers.

Institutionalization of political parties in the parliaments of Central Europe – data mining of parliamentary debates

Learn more

How do new topics become a source of political conflict? How has the understanding of democracy changed over time? Can you predict which parties will fall quickly and which will become important political actors? The project, led by Dr. Agnieszka Kwiatkowska, aims to analyse the process of institutionalization of political parties in parliaments of five Central European countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Slovakia and Hungary), by using quantitative methods of analysing textual data (parliamentary debates) and numerical data (roll-call votes) on an innovative database that will be created in the project.

Key factors determining strategic goals achievement of memorial museums
with particular emphasis on the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oświęcim

Learn more

Museums and memorial sites of the former Nazi German concentration and extermination camps play an important role as elements of historical education and as a warning against horrific crimes committed by totalitarian regimes. However, for the warning to be loud and clear, these sites must be preserved, function and fulfill their educational role. To safeguard the crucial social values, memorial sites require significant resources. The majority of institutionalized memorial sites face considerable financial and organizational difficulties, although some of them fulfill their social mission very effectively and develop best management, fundraising, and commemoration standards.

Political Knowledge in Poland

Learn more

Are average Poles interested in politics? Do they know their local MPs and the names of Ministers serving in the current government? Have they read the Constitution and are they familiar with laws and regulations decreed by the government? A team of sociologists and political scientists from SWPS University, led by Associate Professor Mikołaj Cześnik, will research what is the state of political knowledge among Poles and how this knowledge impacts their voting decisions and in consequence the politics of the country.

Political Knowledge in Poland

Publications

Our scholars publish extensively in Polish and international scientific journals. Their projects focus on the contemporary history of Central and Eastern Europe. Some topics include the role of mythology and symbols in politics, collective memory, and transitional justice. We also research political systems, in particular democracy, European integration, contemporary migrations, management and leadership, and organizational behavior.
