We are happy to announce that we have launched our Twitter and Facebook accounts!
In order to maintain closer contact with members of RC09 and scholars interested in social transformations and sociology of development around the world, we are in the social media world!

RC09 sessions – ISA World Congress of Sociology – Online Program
Please note that the RC09 Business meeting will be held on Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 17:30-19:20. Location: 104D (MTCC NORTH BUILDING).
As the Toronto 2018 ISA Congress is approaching, you may want to learn more about its participants. In our last Newsletter issue, we have added a new section – the information about the current research projects and grants of the RC09 members. You can also find references (and sometimes full texts) of the recently published and forthcoming RC09 member publications on this website or in our RC09 Newsletter issues. For the curious ones, we encourage you to see (or remind yourself) the results of a very interesting initiative – the RC09 members’ survey 2016 – prepared by Josh Dubrow. The main goal of this survey is to understand the research interests of RC09 members, their daily life of scholars and attitudes toward the role of ISA RC09 in their lives.
The call for content for the next issue of our Newsletter will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
The registration for the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology is now open. Do not miss the date! In order to be included in the program, the ISA congress participants must pay a full registration fee before March 20, 2018. All ISA members benefit from a discount registration fee. If you plan to renew or acquire ISA membership, remember that the processing takes 2 to 3 days. Read more about the Congress registration fees and ISA membership.
