Message from the ISA President
Dear Fellow Sociologists,
I'm delighted to report that we have broken all records for registration for the forthcoming ISA World Congress (July 13-19, 2014) with around 5,500 participants.
This is going to be a very special and exciting Congress in beautiful Yokohama bay. Congratulations and thanks to all those devoted Research Committees, Working and Thematic Groups as well National Associations, the dedicated Programme Committee and above all the unstinting work of the ISA Secretariat and the Japanese Local Organizing Committee.
Even as the world faces crisis upon crisis, deepening inequality, and environmental disaster, I'm proud to say that international sociology has never been stronger - stronger because it is resolutely concerned to dissect and meet these challenges.
I look forward to meeting you all in Yokohama.
Michael Burawoy, ISA President
