We strongly encourage our members to become members in the European Sociological Association (ESA). Membership is open to the broad categories of all scholars who actively contribute to the scientific development of sociological knowledge in or about Europe. There are three kinds of members: regular, institutional and student. Members of the ESA receive the European Sociologist Newsletter and the journal European Societies, published by Routledge. Members get reduced registration fees at the ESA conferences.
