Topic of the Month

Initiated in 2016, the ‘Topic of the Month’ campaigns on social media focus on one article each month with the aim of showing the relevance of most topical issues that International Sociology has recently published. During the period of their feature, the selected article is available as free access. This is one way among others to draw attention to the work of diverse sociologists and promote sociology more generally.
