The ESRC Research Centre on Micro-Social Change (MiSoC) is a multidisciplinary centre, promoting collaboration between economists, sociologists and other social scientists. Our programme for the 2014-2019 period, “Understanding individual and family behaviours in a new era of uncertainty and change”, covers three areas: how individuals and families are affected by and react to changes in their life circumstances; how new members of society – children, young people and new migrants – develop and are integrated into it; and how values, attitudes, expectations, tastes and identity are formed.
