View the list of candidates for the Presidency and Executive Committee. Voting begins on 8 August 2019.

To all ESA Members

The Nomination committee of the European Sociological Association is welcoming all ESA Members to vote for the next President and Executive board. The list of candidates was composed after wide consultations and receiving nominations from ESA members, from ESA Research Networks, and from the National Sociological Associations in Europe. A slate of 23 candidates (11 male, 12 female) for the Executive Committee and two candidates for the Presidency has been made, taking into account gender equality, country representation and fields of research (ESA Statutes, Article 11).

According to our Statutes, regular members in good standing elect 14 members of the Executive Committee and the President. All individual members of ESA in good standing (who have paid their membership fees by the time of the 14th ESA Conference in Manchester, August 20-23, 2019) are eligible to vote for the President of ESA and for members of the ESA Executive Committee for the next two-year period.

Members may vote before the Conference or during the Conference by using the online voting system on the ESA website for 1 (one) candidate for the President and a maximum of 10 (ten) candidates for the Executive Committee. Members may also express their candidate preference by writing in the name (or names) of other ESA members in good standing.

The elections take place before and during the 14th ESA Conference, from Thursday 8 August to Thursday 22 August 2019 at 7:00 PM (BST Time).
