European Sociological Association (ESA)

  • Description
  • The Mission of ESA

    The European Sociological Association (ESA) aims to facilitate sociological research, teaching and communication on European issues, and to give sociology a voice in European affairs.

    ESA is an academic association of sociologists and a non-profit Europe-wide association made up of over 1800 members. It was established in 1992, following deliberations and consultations among sociologists from a diverse range of countries.

    Europe is in the midst of massive changes, including the transformations in east and central Europe and the increasing integration of the European Union. Sociology has much to contribute to European level debates and developments. The ESA has an important role to play in organizing the European debate and setting the agenda.
