International Conference on Transformations of the Military Profession - Call for applicationsThe Board of the Research Committee on Armed Forces and Conflict Resolution (RC01, http://www.isa-rc01.net/) of the International Sociological Association has accepted Dr. Celso Castro proposal to organize RC 01’s Interim Conference in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, from September 25 to 28, 2016, with support from the Getulio Vargas Foundation, one of the most important think tanks of South America.
The overarching theme of the conference makes provision for a wide range of research interests: Transformations of the Military Profession.
Due to the financial support of FGV, there will be no registration fee for this conference. However, all accepted participants must be members in good standing of ISA/RC01 (and, if they are not already a member, must join through ISA).
Failure to demonstrate this status will result in exclusion from the program. Please contact Uros Svete (email@example.com) to check your ISA/RC01 status or the ISA General Secretariat (http://www.isa-sociology.org/memb_i/index.htm).
See the schedule below for timelines to submit session and paper proposals for the Interim Conference.
