Research Training Group "Transnational Social Support"

In view of global developments, the future challenges faced by social support systems can no longer be met by relationships and structures of support that are limited to individual nations or societies. Therefore, the Research Training Group "Transnational Social Support", funded from 2008 - 2017 by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – DFG), was geared towards empirical research on Transnational Social Support. In existing research on social support, transnational constellations so far have received little scholarly attention.

The Research Training Group 1474 "Transnational Social Support" was located at the Institute of Education at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the Institute of Social Work and Organization Studies at the University of Hildesheim, both Germany.
