The Doctoral School of Social Sciences and Statistics offers an advanced training aimed at fostering the acquisition of a common research vocabulary, and aims to provide a special focus on qualitative and quantitative methods of research grounded on international theoretical debate. The doctoral program focuses on social transformations impacting the fields, processes and cultures of the post-Welfare restructuring of Mediterranean Regions, and particularly the South of Italy, which seek to activate - even in the recurrent glo-calization crisis - strategies and policies against further peripheral marginalization. The courses focuses on topics such as:

1. Demographic fluxes, labor, immigration;

2. 'New' poverties and inequalities;

3. Communication and digital culture;

4. Politics and political governance;

5. Identity cultures and gender;

6. Youth consumption and entrepreneurship;

7. Illegality and organized crime.

8. Statistical techniques for social analysis and Big Data.
