STI is an international research center dedicated to the analysis of significant social trends. STI focuses its research on four subject areas: Family, Bioethics, Culture & Lifestyles and Governance.
STI’s sole aim is to promote research and scholarship of the highest academic standards. In so doing, we hope to make a scholarly contribution towards understanding the varying and complex social trends that are intertwined with the modern world. We are committed, then, to that which makes such scholarship possible: intellectual freedom, openness to a diversity of viewpoints and a shared commitment to serve our common humanity.
STI focuses its research on four subject areas: Family, Bioethics, Culture & Lifestyles and Governance. STI organizes Experts Meetings, which bring scholars together to present and discuss each others' original research in an academic forum. These meetings are not open to the public and are intended to foster open intellectual dialogue between scholars from all over the world, of various academic backgrounds, disciplines and beliefs. Often, STI helps to publish a collection of the conference papers in a single volume, revised and reviewed in light of the meeting’s discussion.
22 publications have come out as a result of STI meetings and sponsorship. See them at: http://www.socialtrendsinstitute.org/Publications.axd
