This Year's Publishers and Research Instruments

Barbara Budrich Publishers

In 2004, Barbara Budrich founded her press because she believed in the great value social sciences can have for society at large. At Barbara Budrich Publishers we are convinced that most of the problems societies all across the globe are facing today can be explained and ultimately solved with the knowledge social sciences provide.

Demographic change, migration, integration, social and educational inequality – these are just a few of the vast issues social sciences help to answer.

Our book list and journals offer top quality research in the social sciences and humanities, specifically in the subject areas of Educational Research and Pedagogy, Sociology, Social Work, Political Science, International Relations and Gender.
