Prof. Dr. Manfred Max Bergman

Social Research and Methodology Group (SRaM)
max.bergman-at-unibas.ch

Chair of Social Research and Methodology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Previous academic affiliations include the Universities of Cambridge, Essex, Florence (European University Institute), Geneva, Johannesburg, Lausanne, Pretoria, Stellenbosch, St. Gall, the Witwatersrand, and Zurich. At present, I am also Extraordinary Professor at the Universities of the Western Cape and the Free State, South Africa, and Visiting Professor at the University of International Business and Economics, China.

The main focus of SRaM’s research is on sustainability and global studies, particularly the interdependence between society, business, and government in a globalized world. In pursuing policy-relevant and change-oriented research relating to societal sustainability, we are working on a new social science research approach, entitled Social Transitions Research (STR). I also teach and publish on qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research, and I chair the World Sustainability Forum - the next WSF events will take place in Cape Town in January 2017 and in Beijing in 2018. SRaM is member of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), a global initiative for the United Nations.
