Research on Kerala Migration
Research on Kerala migration explores the complex dynamics and patterns of migration from the southern Indian state of Kerala. One key aspect is the historical connection between Kerala and the Gulf countries, where a significant number of Keralites have migrated for employment opportunities. The impact of migration on the state’s economy, as well as the social and cultural changes experienced by migrants and their families, are also crucial areas of investigation. Researchers analyze the role of remittances in shaping local
economies, the challenges faced by migrants, and the transnational networks that emerge as a result of migration.

Research on Environment and Sustainability
Research on the environment and sustainability is a critical endeavor aimed at understanding the complex interplay between human activities and the natural world, with a focus on developing strategies to ensure a harmonious and resilient coexistence. Additionally, researchers assess the potential environmental challenges such as pollution and degradation. The research also examines recognizing the interconnectedness between human societies and the environment. https://ojs.trp.org.in/index.php/arss/article/view/2856

Research on Sociology of Consumerism

Research on consumerism investigates the multifaceted aspects of modern consumption patterns, exploring how individuals and societies acquire, use, and discard goods and services. This research often examines the influence of advertising, marketing strategies, and cultural factors on consumer choices, shedding light on the mechanisms that drive trends and preferences. Understanding consumerism involves studying the role of technology, globalization, and economic systems in shaping consumption patterns.
