Accumulation and compensation of inequalities

ISA RC28 Spring Meeting 2021
University of Turku, Finland
June 2-4 2021

We are sorry to inform you that the RC28 2020 Meeting in Turku is cancelled. This is of course a huge disappointment and we are sorry for the inconveniences this has caused for everyone.

The 2020 meeting will take place at the University of Turku, Finland, from June 2-4, 2021. The meeting will be held under the conference theme of “Accumulation and compensation of inequalities” and paper or poster submissions that address this theme are especially encouraged.

As the conference will feature regular sessions on all fields of stratification research, any contribution relevant to the broad research agenda of the RC28 on social stratification, mobility and inequality is welcome.

RC28 Spring Meeting 2021 at the University of Turku is considered a new conference. This means that those of you who have been accepted to the 2020 meeting will need to reapply.

RC28 Turku Meeting postponed until June 2-4, 2021

Due to the global corona virus crisis, the RC28 Board and the organisers of the Turku meeting have decided to postpone the event until June 2-4, 2021. If you have already registered for the Turku May meeting and are likely to attend the Turku August meeting, no further action is required of you. However, if you have registered for the May meeting and will not be able to attend the August meeting, we will refund your registration fees. Instructions on how to get your refund will be sent to you soon.

The registration deadline for the June meeting will be announced later.
