The Social and Political Science group at the Collegio Carlo Alberto comprises a motivated and diverse group of scholars. Some are chosen on merit from the University of Torino as fellows and affiliates and some are hired directly by the Collegio on the international market from leading universities. The fellows and affiliates maintain close contact with the internal faculty and play an important role for our vibrant community at the Collegio.
The SPS group conducts research in several areas of social and political science, such as migration, gender studies, social mobility, conflict, social norms, demography and trust. Members publish articles in top international journals and books with international University presses, and compete for major grants.

In our regular seminar series we invite international scholars, both established and junior ones.

Our group takes an active role in the Allievi Honors Program high-achieving students of the University of Turin, in which undergraduate students of the SPS “magistrale” track receive cutting-edge training in theory and methods. PhD students enjoy close mentoring and supervision, usually within the NASP framework.
