Who we are

 (HThe idea for this conference emerged as an extension to the Geneva Sociology Platform, which aims to foster exchanges between sociologists working in the city. Over the past three years, sociologists from different institutions working in Geneva have met on an annual basis in a forum to discuss common research themes and interests. Building on the momentum of this platform, two main institutions have come together to organize the next Congress of the Swiss Sociological Association in Geneva: the University of Geneva and the Haute Ecole de Travail Social de Genève (HETS GE/HES-SO). We are also delighted to have colleagues form the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies on our scientific committee in Geneva.

As Geneva was also the birthplace of the first sociology department in Switzerland, and given the experience of the University of Geneva in organizing past events, we are looking forward to hosting this new edition in the wider institutional setting of the City and Canton of Geneva. Past conferences of the SSS in Geneva include: 

2011: Democracy in turbulent times;
2009: Identité et transformations des modes de vie;
2001: Théories et interventions.
