Seventh Meeting of the European Network for the Sociological and Demographic Study of Divorce June 25th-26th 2009 in Antwerp, BelgiumThe Research Centre for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies (CELLO) this year hosts the Seventh Meeting of the European Network for the Sociological and Demographic Study of Divorce. The conference will take place in Antwerp, Belgium on June 25-26th.
The conference invites papers on the causes, procedure or consequences of divorce. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcome but we do encourage cross national analyses. The format of the meeting is similar to previous meetings, with regular Paper sessions and plenty of time for discussions.
| |About the network
Jaap Dronkers & Matthijs Kalmijn:
The aim is to bring together scholars who work empirically on this topic and to form a European network for empirical and comparative research on the sociological aspects of divorce. Given the increasing divorce rates in Europe, the slowly starting research on divorce in Europe, the many possibilities to compare between European states and the growing interest of policy makers and the broader public for the sociological aspects of divorce, such a network would be very beneficial for the quality of the research. This network should meet twice a year to discuss current research of the members, to promote comparative research and to stimulate publications on this topic.>> website with more information
