The Division of Social Sciences (ÖKUS)
The Division of Social Sciences (ÖKUS) comprises the departments concerned with research in social sciences (including jurisprudence) at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ (see links below). Our research is orientated towards the idea of sustainable development and places the human being with its environmentally relevant behaviour into the centre of attention. We investigate conditions and implementation possibilities of environmentally and socially viable ways of living for preserving the basis of human existence for current and future generations.
Within the Division of Social Sciences there are six thematic working groups. These working groups facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange within an application field beyond the individual research projects and disciplinary departments within ÖKUS.
