Welcome to the website of the Göttingen Diversity Research Institute!

The Göttingen Diversity Research Institute researches processes of diversification and their consequences. The Institute’s primary aim is to develop research on diversity and processes of diversification, both theoretically and empirically. We focus in particular on organisational issues.
Other areas of interest include the micro level, the macro level and the symbolic order.

We are interested in the following questions:

  • How, when and why do organisations respond to diversity?

  • Which societal processes and tendencies lead to diversification and diversity?

  • How, and to what extent, are individuals affected by different dimensions of diversity?

  • How are diversity management policies perceived by universities, businesses, governments, the press, etc.?

The Institute also advises the University of Göttingen in implementing diversity management policies that are research-based and research-oriented.
