Chapter Summary

Since its foundation in 1893 the International Institute of Sociology (IIS) has played an important and at times crucial role in the international world of social science. In recent years the IIS has increasingly come to play a role analogous to that of its early years. World Congresses of the IIS have highlighted dilemmas of human existence and societal institutions amidst processes of globalization, cooperation and violent conflict. The 37th World Congress of the IIS focused on theory and research at the forefront of sociology and on the relationship between sociology and its neighboring disciplines. This volume constitutes a sustained effort by prominent sociologists and other social scientists to assess the current standing of sociology.

Keywords: International Institute of Sociology (IIS); social science
