ISA mid term conference at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico city, February 2016

The SoRU network extends heartfelt thanks to Ignacio Rubio and colleagues sitting on the organizing committee for hosting the ISA mid term conference at UNAM in Mexico City in February 2016. This is the first time the mid term conference has been held outside of Europe and it was a huge success. The program included five plenaries and sixteen paper sessions (seventy two papers; two sessions in English, three Spanish/English, and the rest in Spanish). The topics of the sessions included: social policy, health, crime, subjectivity, inequity, disasters, environment, social theory and research methods. The Conference attracted local and foreign researchers, students and officials from Mexico’s ministry of internal affairs. Mexican universities represented at conference included: Guadalajara, Yucatán, Coahuila, Tlaxcala, Estado de México, Morelos, de la Ciudad de México, Hidalgo and Puebla, Universidad Lasalle, FLACSO,  Colegio de Veracruz, UAM Cuajimalpa, Xochimilco and Azcapotzalco. From within the National University colleagues attended from Schools of Psychology, Philosophy and Medicine, and from the Institutes of Social Research, Law and Geography. Academics from Universities around the globe participated in the conference (Kent, Bath, Hildesheim, Melbourne, Polish Academy of Science, Universidad de la Patagonia, Universidad de La Plata, Mid Sweden University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Illinois). The cross-disciplinary discussion on issues of risk and uncertainty across a range of topics was an extremely positive aspect of the event diversity presented in the working sessions.
