Established in 2007
The Junior Sociologists Network of the International Sociological Association grew out of the empowering experience of participants at the ISA Laboratories for PhD students, ISA Juniors Sociologists Competition and ISA congresses.
The JSN is the worldwide representation of students, early-career academics and practitioners, regardless of their thematic interests or scientific approaches, who are engaged in studying and practicing sociology and essentially related disciplines.
The JSN aims at providing to junior sociologists a useful organizational platform and a supportive community for sharing relevant information, exchanging ideas and creating collaborations in order to produce and disseminate sociological knowledge, as well as to advance professional careers.
