 3rd International Sociology and Critical 

Perspectives Conference

  @ Istanbul, coordinated by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center). 

Political science and sociology have developed a variety of theories and empirical research on social movements. With regard to these studies, subjects such as definitions of social movements, functions of social movements, and possible forms of social movements at different scales are going to come under spotlight in SOCIO CRI ’16. The aim is to explore the dynamics of social movements, along with the ideas that motivate their activists and supporters. Given the significance of the mass movements in numbers of countries during the early years of this decade, we especially welcome papers discussing these – while also welcoming papers on other topics such as history and theory of social movements.

All submitted papers are subject to double blind peer review. Conference proceedings are going to be available on DVD as e-book and DAKAM's digital library with an ISBN number before the conference and will be sent to be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholars.
