The topics dealt with depend on the interests of the members and availability of resources. Examples of past topics of interest are: gender and environment issues; public access to education; values in public education; the question of justice; immigration, racism, poverty; racial and ethnic conflicts; health issues such as euthanasia, care for the poor, death and dying; meta-social issues involving conceptual and methodological problems or research biases.
