European Consortium for Sociological Research

Conference Theme: Inequality over the Life Course

While there is a particular interest for papers or posters that address this theme, we also
welcome submissions on all relevant areas of sociological research, notably the labour
market, education, gender, the family, migration and ethnicity, urban and spatial inequalities,
political sociology, health and well-being, social mobility and social stratification in general.
Please submit your proposal – an extended abstract of 2-4 pages or a full paper – through
the conference website:

The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2019. All submissions are subject to peer review
by the scientific committee. The priority goes to theoretically-based empirical studies in
sociology. Authors will be informed about the decision by 10 April 2019. Registration is then
open until 31 May 2019. For any further questions, please contact

The keynote speakers are Delia Baldassari (New York University), Gunn Elisabeth Birkelund
(University of Oslo), Martin Diewald (University of Bielefeld) and Herman van de Werfhorst
(University of Amsterdam).

The conference is organized by the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research LIVES,
with the support of the Institute of Social Sciences (ISS) of the University of Lausanne, the
