Welcome in Paris!


The theme of the 2018 conference of the European Consortium for Sociological Research is “Causes and Consequences of Inequalities in Europe”. This theme will receive special attention, and as always, we welcome presentations on all relevant areas of sociological research, such as the labor market, education, gender, the family, migration and ethnicity, urban and spatial inequalities, political sociology, health and well-being, social mobility, assortative mating and social stratification in general.

The conference is organized by the Observatoire Sociologique du Changement / Centre for Studies in Social Change (Sciences Po & CNRS), with the support of the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED), the Quantitative Sociology Laboratory (ENSAE–CREST), the Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics (Sciences Po & CNRS) and the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (Sciences Po).

The conference takes place at Sciences Po, 27 rue Saint-Guillaume, 75007 Paris.
