IVTH ISA Forum of Sociology

IVTH ISA Forum of Sociology. Consider submitting an English-language abstract for the sessions being organized for the ISA’s forum on “Challenges of the 21st Century: Democracy, Environment, Inequalities, Intersectionality” on July 14-18, 2020, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. While the expansion and the deepening of democratization was taken for granted at the turn of the Millennium, democracy has been at stake in an increasing number of countries, while its key component such as diversity and equal respect for all citizens are threatened. The hope for a global democracy able to tackle global issues such as climate change, migrations and rising inequalities have faded. It has now become clear that to face global challenges, democracy needs to be re-invented within and beyond the representative system. Deadline: September 30, 2019.
