By Raquel Sosa Elízaga, Vice-President for Program
The Program Committee for the 2014 Yokohama World Congress has been approved by the ISA Executive Committee. It was chosen with due regard to diversity by region, by gender, by area of specialty as well as for their scholarly distinction and expertise in the theme of the Congress: Facing an Unequal World: Challenges for Global Sociology. I look forward to the intensive and extensive international collaboration to make the Congress a great success.
