We are very pleased to invite you to take part in the 29th Nordic Sociological Association Conference, to be held in Aalborg 8-10 August, 2018. The title of the conference 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.

Call for sessions: 1st of March 2018.
