Membership is open to the broad categories of all scholars who actively contribute to the scientific development of sociological knowledge in or on Europe. There are three kinds of members: regular, institutional and student.
Regular membership is open to scholars who either carry out sociological research, teach sociology, have sociological jobs, are members of European national sociological associations, or have academic degrees and training in sociology
Starting in 1999, membership of the ESA is more complete than ever: members of the ESA receive not only the European Sociologist Newsletter, but also our new journal European Societies, published by Routledge. The first issue appeared in April 1999, comprising articles by leading European sociologists. Of course, members of the ESA pay less than other subscribers!
Please be informed that the reduced registration fee for members at ESA conferences is not applied to institutional members.
