 Until 2003, the main purpose of the Foundation'​s sponsoring activities was to finance entire research projects focusing on the various processes of social integration and disintegration within worldwide systems – world culture, world economy, world politics, and intergovernmental systems – and on how global processes affect the perceptions and actions of individual and collective actors worldwide. Its current sponsoring policy is to provide a large number of grants for research papers, as opposed to sponsoring only a few “big-size” research projects. In accordance with this new policy, the Foundation has introduced its WSF Award Program for Research Papers on World Society and held a series of international conferences in order to sustain a network of excellent scholars interested in transnational and global research topics. The World Society Foundation Award honors outstanding research papers on world society that address a specific topic announced by the Foundation in its Award Program. The World Society Foundation also publishes the book series “World Society Studies”. ​ Until 2003, the main purpose of the Foundation'​s sponsoring activities was to finance entire research projects focusing on the various processes of social integration and disintegration within worldwide systems – world culture, world economy, world politics, and intergovernmental systems – and on how global processes affect the perceptions and actions of individual and collective actors worldwide.
