Summary/Abstract: Research in the field of social policy and social work, under which this text implies social research, are unjustifiably neglected in our society, although there is a notable demand for studying of new social phenomena, processes and problems on which we know nothing or just a bit. The causes of such situation should be searched for in institutional system of social policy, i.e. the deficit of research institutions in this field, insufficient motivation of young and talented experts for dealing with scientific research and analytical research work in this field, particularly those acting in the social security system, insufficient financial support to research, insufficient training of human resources for research, insufficient technical equipment of institutions that should carry out research, etc. The importance of social research for overall societaleconomic and social development is undeniable, particularly in societies in transition which face challenges of creation, conceptualization and establishment of national strategies of longterm development.
