Established in 2001 as an explicitly interdisciplinary institute, it brings together researchers in the fields of geography, sociology, communication, philosophy, architecture, spatial planning, and tourism. The institute's research examines all aspects of cultural (as well as multi- inter- and transcultural) interaction, namely, the ramifications of globalisation, mixed marriages, the role and effects of Islam in Slovenia and Europe, as well as the multifaceted dimensions of domestic life.
Projects carried out at the institute have delved into a wide array of topics, including the problematic of contemporary printed media, the impact of the Internet on the process of socialisation in physical and cyberspace, and the immigrant labour pool in Slovenia. Detailed descriptions of current and past projects can be found at the institute's web page in Slovenian, Italian, and English languages.
