About NSA

NSA_logo

The Nordic Sociological Association (NSA) is an alliance of the national sociological associations in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. All members of the national sociological associations are collective members of NSA. NSA’s main tasks are the quarterly journal Acta Sociological, which publishes papers on high-quality innovative sociology, Nordic Sociological Conference which takes place every second year, and supporting the sociological professional development in the Nordic countries, particularly through financial support to seminars and conferences. All five Nordic countries are represented in the NSA board with two members appointed by each national association.

The Nordic Sociological Conference is traditionally held in August every second year and rotates between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. With a long history, the Nordic Sociological Conference is an important meeting ground for Nordic sociologists and welcomes the international sociological community to be a part of it as well. In 2016, the 28th Nordic Sociological Conference will be hosted by the Department of Social Research and Swedish School of Social Science at University of Helsinki, Finland.
