2018 ISA RC28 Spring Meeting

Rethinking Social Inequality
in the Globalizing World

Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea

May 25-27, 2018



Welcome to the 2018 Spring Meeting of the Research Committee on Social Stratification and Mobility (RC28) of the International Sociological Association (ISA).



The meeting takes place at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, on May 25-27, 2018. It is organized by the Korea Inequality Research Network in collaboration with Yonsei University, Chung-Ang University, and Institute of Social Science at Korea University.




The theme of the meeting is Rethinking Social Inequality in the Globalizing World. For the last few decades, we have witnessed an unprecedented level of social change in its scale and intensity due to rapid globalization. One of the primary concerns of the globalizing world has been the increasing social inequality across countries, and now we are facing a new set of issues and challenges both unprecedented thus unprepared. We hope the 2018 spring meeting in Seoul (re)vitalizes discussion on social inequalities, rethinking its challenges and implications in the globalizing world.
