PPSG has four permanent research groups on the following themes:

(1) social movements
(2) postwar Japanese movement thoughts
(3) globalization and people's transborder alliances
(4) subsistence as people's alternative

PPSG emphasizes evaluation of the postwar social movements in Japan and beyond in the belief that without drawing lessons from what has been done it would be difficult to map out the future. Groups (1) and (2) are working with this concern while (3) is more on the present and future, studying how effectively people's movements, NGOs, and other agencies can emerge as viable global people's forces to counter the neo-liberal globalization regime. Group (4) concentrates on life-oriented alternative systems (subsistence)
