We investigate the formation of a society through the analysis and discussion of various phenomena in the contemporary society and undertake sociological research using broad theoretical and empirical perspectives. The faculty members work on research topics such as religion and migration, and our graduate students work on diverse research topics such as poverty, disaster victims, rational choice theory, and so on.
