Empowering Young Sociologists: Recap of the Summer School on Research Methods

Aim and Objectives

The primary aim of the Summer School was to equip young students, researchers, and practitioners in sociological and related fields with a profound understanding of essential methods and approaches to conduct social science research. This intensive program aimed to:

  • Cultivate critical thinking and research capabilities;
  • Foster the application of social science research methodologies;
  • Facilitate publication in peer-reviewed journals;
  • Establish valuable connections with prominent scholars;
  • Provide a platform for young sociologists to showcase their work.

Course Highlights

Throughout the event, participants were immersed in a dynamic learning environment, guided by leading scholars from reputable universities and local experts. The training course covered an array of modern research skills widely employed in social science, allowing attendees to:

  • Develop and submit research proposals;
  • Gain insights into critical literature review techniques;
  • Craft research questions and objectives;
  • Manage research projects effectively;
  • Explore both quantitative and qualitative research methods;
  • Understand ethical considerations and human subjects’ approval;

A Promising Future

The Summer School was a monumental opportunity for young sociologists to broaden their horizons, form meaningful connections, and refine their research methodologies. By participating, attendees opened doors to the global network of sociologists, the International Association of Sociologists, and made their first step to establish themselves on the global stage.

We extend our gratitude to all the participants, instructors, and partners who made this event a resounding success. We eagerly anticipate witnessing the scholarly contributions and accomplishments of the young sociologists of Uzbekistan who were part of this remarkable week.
