Professor Silke Paulmann with a psychology student

Our researchers are at the forefront of psychology research tackling the pressing challenges of creating a healthier, more caring, informed, educated, fair, and environmentally aware society.

Through our exploration of Healthy and Caring Societies, we delve into the intricate connections between prejudice, discrimination, and well-being, aiming to foster inclusive environments where individuals thrive. In our investigations of Informed and Educated Societies, we unravel the complexities of information acquisition and decision-making, empowering individuals to navigate an interconnected world with critical thinking and communication skills. Additionally, in our pursuit of Fair and Environmentally Aware Societies, we address systemic injustices and promote sustainability through interdisciplinary approaches, seeking to foster environments of justice, equity, and environmental stewardship for present and future generations. Join us in shaping a brighter future where every individual is valued, informed, and empowered to contribute to a thriving society.
