Bogdan Voicu is member of the Romanian Group for Studying Social Values, being the principal investigator in Romanian World Values Survey waves from 2005 and 2012, and field director during the 2008 wave of the European Values Survey. He is also part of the Romanian Election Studies’ team. The best-known journals where he published are European Sociological Review, Journal for Ethnic and Migration Studies, Current Sociology, etc. His most recent authored book refers to social capital in Romania, approached in comparative perspective (2010).

He discusses the socialization hypothesis and the institutionalization assumption, and argues that these explanations are not concurrent, but complementary.
