The Center for Feminist Social Studies is a multidisciplinary research and doctoral studies environment, comprised of twenty senior researchers and five doctoral students who work within a research program framework entitled "Gender, Society and Change". The center has a number of affiliated scholars from other universities in Sweden and foreign universities.

Participants, from the fields of Sociology, Social Work, Political Science, History, Musicology, Pedagogy and Gender Studies, are engaged in various research projects, which are linked to the Center's research program.

The Center for Feminist Social Studies offers doctoral level courses. A research seminar functions on the one hand as a forum in which research projects are presented and discussed, and on the other hand as an essential component in the doctoral student tutoring process.

CFS cooperates closely with Linköping university's Tema Genus and Karlstad university's Centre for Gender Studies in GEXcel International Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies.
