Southern European Societies series

Series Editors: Dr Manuel Fernández-Esquinas, Institute for Advanced Social Studies, CSIC, Spain and Dr Laura Oso, Faculty of Sociology, University of La Coruña, Spain

 

The aim of the book series on Southern European Societies is to conduct research in social dynamics, social problems, institutions and governance in the South of Europe. The books are intended to be authoritative projects addressing topics related to social problems of common interest for several countries of southern Europe. Projects with a comparative element will be particularly welcome. The topics will be grounded mainly in sociological perspectives, open to interdisciplinary approaches and collaboration with related social sciences such as education, anthropology, social policy and others.

The series welcomes submissions on topics such as: social welfare, work and employment, migrations, education, innovation, political participation, gender and youth, inequalities and social exclusion, EU integration and convergence, European identities, social relationships, institutions and policies, among other key topics.

The books are expected to be of between 80,000 and 100,000 words, including figures and references. Edited volumes are particularly welcome, but proposals for authored monographs will be also considered.

The book series is supported by the active collaboration of the ESA Research Network on Southern European Societies and RESU (the Network of Sociology Associations of Countries of the South of Europe).

Editorial Board

An international board of highly-acclaimed experts from different countries has been included. The selection of experts is based on CV and experience in scholarly research in their countries in order to ensure quality control and independence. Most of the experts included in this proposal are members of the boards of the national association or the ESA RN27, although other independent sociologists of high repute in their countries have been included. The international Editorial Board will collaborate in assessing the principal topics for inclusion in the series and the evaluation of the proposals.
