BSA Annual Conference April 2012


(Leeds University)

(Quick link: Events and Activities)


The BSA Annual Conference took place in Leeds in April 2012. This was only the second year that Sociology of Rights Study Group had its own stream, which this year it shared with the Violence Against Women Study Group. Twenty six papers were presented overall, and the subjects covered were wide-ranging - reflecting the growth of the group and interest in the subject. Papers addressed issues such as the right to education in Turkey, post-conflict reconstruction in Northern Ireland, the digital divide in South Korea and LGBT rights in India.
