INCASI (International Network for Comparative Analysis of Social Inequalities) has participated in XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology

INCASI network held the 3rd Latin American and European Workshop while taking part in the ISA Congress in Toronto, Canada in July 2018, with the purpose of generating synergies with the International Sociological Association (ISA). In the context of Research Committee 55, the INCASI members presented research progress content in the session “Indicators of Social Inequalities: Comparative Analysis Among Countries” organized by Sandra Fachelli and Pedro López Roldán.

INCASI aims to create and consolidate a network of research and training between Europe and Latin America. To achieve this, the project ‘Global trends in social inequalities in Europe and Latin America and exploring innovative ways to reduce them through life, occupational and educational trajectories research to face uncertainty’ has been developed with a duration of four years, from January 2016 to December 2019, and it is funded with more than 2 million euro by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE), Project Number: GA691004. Ten European and 10 Latin American universities are involved in this network, with more than 140 researchers, coordinated by the Institute for Labor Studies (IET) and the Research Group on Education and Labor (GRET) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. The coordinator and Main Researcher of the network is Pedro López-Roldán (IET), and Sandra Fachelli (GRET) holds the position of Task Manager. Through the INCASI network, it is planned to establish the conceptual and methodological bases for, on the one hand, the development of a longer-term international comparative research programme and, on the other hand, the design of an international postgraduate study programme that analyzes social inequalities in a comparative perspective.
