The IPSE Research Unit within the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education concerns itself with relevant social issues and developments in a socio-cultural, historical, political, spatial and linguistic perspective. Its research activities do not focus exclusively on Luxembourg but take a broader view to include the level of the Greater Region and Europe. 

The Research Unit is home to scholars from various disciplines working on common themes with an interdisciplinary approach. The disciplines represented in the unit are History, Political Science, Sociology, German, French and Luxembourgish Language and Literature, Geography and Spatial Planning, Arts, Philosophy and Gender Studies. Identities and socio-cultural identity constructions constitute a common research focus combining all of the disciplines represented in IPSE. The IPSE members are particularly involved in two research programmes : Luxembourg Studies European Governance.
