Because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the conference will take place online this year.

Annual Meeting Dag van de Sociologie 2020 is cancelled

The most recent developments concerning the coronavirus determine our daily reality deeply. The by the government implemented measures to control the virus are becoming increasingly strict, both in the Netherlands and in Belgium, and now extend to June 1, 2020. It will not surprise anyone that under these circumstances we are planning the Day of Sociology, planned on May 28, 2020 in Leuven, is cancelled.

We would like to thank everyone who has made an effort to prepare and contribute to the Annual Meeting 2020. We want to encourage the submitters of papers to offer them to one of the sociology journals in the Low Countries. Those who submitted papers or session proposals will be notified separately where appropriate. We are already looking forward to the Annual Meeting Dag van de Sociologie 2021. More news about this event will be communicated in due time via the appropriate channels, including the NSV and VVS websites.

We hope that everyone stays healthy and that we can stop the virus through our individual and collective efforts. A truly sociological endeavour.

Kind regards,

Godfried Engbersen, chairman of the Dutch Sociological Association (NSV)
Geert van Hootegem, chairman of the Flemish Sociological Association (VVS)
