SASA Working Groups

SASA has a number of thematic working groups. The possibility of developing these into even more active research committees is being considered. Below is a table presenting the different working groups, with the names of their conveners, in which papers are usually presented. Scholars may submit abstracts related to:

  • the theme of the congress,
  • the field of speciality of the working groups, or
  • other interesting sociological subjects.
