Dear colleagues and fellow scholars,
From the 8th to the 10th of August 2018 the 29th Nordic Sociological Association Conference will be hosted by the Department of Sociology and Social Work, Aalborg University, Denmark. This summer conference will take place in the city of Aalborg. We hereby invite calls for sessions.
For more information see: http://www.nsa2018.aau.dk/call-for-sessions/
The title and overall theme is:
*The Global North – Welfare policies, mobilities, inequalities, and social movements*
The conference focuses on the relation between Nordic countries and global processes. How do the Nordic countries influence global processes and how do global processes such as migration, division of labour, environmental problems, commodity production and discourses for modern governance influence the Nordic countries. The conference will address challenges to the Nordic countries and responses to such challenges. Hence, the conference addresses questions of migration, poverty, inequality, recent labour market and welfare state developments. The conference also focuses on responses from civil society, institutional developments, changes in organizations, management, governance and the frontline of the welfare state.
You will find this information and more on the homepage of the conference:
