Collective Membership

There are two categories of collective members of the International Sociological Association: National Associations (Regular Members), and Affiliated Members.

Regular collective members shall be countrywide sociological associations established for scientific purposes and open to all active sociologists. They shall be admitted to membership by a decision of the Executive Committee (EC), subject to ratification by the Council of National Associations.

Constituting the Council of National Associations (CNA), collective members actively promote regional and cross-country cooperation and highlight the activities of each collective member. The CNA aims to create a community to consult and cooperate with on common interests including collective networks on approaches, emphases, and cultures of doing sociology. National associations and affiliated members all over the world contribute to the diversity of global voices in ISA’s deliberations and vision.
