Organisation Profile

The ways in which  human beings construct and categorize their world constitute the frameworks for their observations, attitudes and actions. When arguing and making sense of the world one refers to the basic frameworks and benchmarks of one’s thinking. Through argumentation, sense making and other communicative processes we construct new knowledge(s) and perpetuate the existing one(s). Within this research field we have studied and currently study e.g. constructions and conceptions of equality, European integration, violence, security, human rights, nationality, scientific knowledge, policies and feminism.  Also technology and foods have been our topics.

International and National Collaboration Publications and projects within past five years.
