HIVA-KU Leuven has a multidisciplinary staff. Our top priorities are scientific quality and social relevance. We conduct high-quality, innovative academic and policy-related research that works for people and society.

Attention for the problems affecting workers, socially vulnerable groups, social organisations and movements in society is always the common thread. We participate in numerous international academic networks.
Our research areas are: Work and Organisation, Labour Market, Poverty and Social Integration, Civil Society and Social Economy, Migration and (civic) integration, Environmental Policy and Sustainable Development, Education and Lifelong Learning, Development Cooperation, Welfare State, Housing.
