Sociological Research and Public Debate - First ISA Forum of Sociology
Datum: 05.09.2008 - 08.09.2008
The idea of the Forum gathers and redefines the traditionally organised Research Council conference and the interim conferences of Research Committees. It will be an event with two kinds of programs: a general program conceived as a dialogue between RCs and made up of the papers presented by the RCs? delegates to the Research Council conference, and the parallel programs of the RCs organised by them.
The general theme is Sociological Research and Public Debate and a comprehensive plan of communication will be elaborated trying to project as much as possible the Forum towards the media and citizenry, and organizing a series of debates open to general public amongst prominent sociologists participating in the event, specialists of other disciplines and relevant actors of the public sphere.
The Forum is an initiative of Arturo Rodríguez Morató, ISA Vice-President for Research Council. It its organized by the ISA jointly with the Catalan Association of Sociology and the Spanish Federation of Sociology.
