The Social and Organizational Analylis research group (ASO) was created in the Business Management Department of University Rovira i Virgili in order to develop social science analysis and research from a interdisciplinar perspective in two main fields: Organizational phenomena and Social issues.
Organizational phenomena · Labour Relations and Human Resources · Social organization of work (class, gender, ethnicity…) · Private and public organizations · Innovation processes · SME’s and entrepreneurship · ICT
Social issues · Gender analysis · Education, training and mobility · Social structure and social inclusion and social exclusion · Language · Methodology in Sociology · Migrations . Public policies
Internationalisation process The Catalan Government recognized ASO as a Consolidated Research Group in 2009 (SGR2009 310) and in 2014 (SGR2014 819), which distinguish the quality of the projects. Currently, the group is focused on a process of internacionalisation: we cooperate in scientific and education projects with other universities and research centers from Spain, Europe and Latin America.
International Journal of Organizations ASO launched a new academic journal in 2007, the International Journal of Organizations, which is published twice a year, and supported by the Ibero-american Association of Organizational Sociology. The journal has an academical and professional orientation and it is directed at people interested in the organizational analysis in different social and economic contexts.
