Department of Social
The Department of social sciences organizes scientific research covering a broad
range from philosophy to very concrete empirical investigation of ethnographic
and demographic character.
At the present time philosophers mostly deal with critical analysis of modern
social thought among Serbs, including history of Serbian philosophy in 19th
and 20th century.
In the field of law the focus is on the study of sources and on foreign
influences on Serbian law. There is an interdisciplinary study on human rights
and national minorities.
Economists organize scientific conferences once a year, which are concerned with
strategic problems of Yugoslav economic development.
Among of the most active groups are demographists who have a number of projects
studying population changes, migrations, family planning and population
