objectives and Timetable
Thinkshops are events aiming at the collective reflections on theories making a substantial contribution to the progress of social thought. Theories discussed on thinkshops may come from any social science discipline. Thinkshops discuss only one theory and do this one full meeting. Theories discussed on thinkshops will be distributed to the interested people 2 months before the event to provide time to read and think. Thinkshops are carried out electronically in order to avoid any financial barriers for participating.
