GD 9.3 - December 2019

Editorial

In countries of the Global North and South alike debates around climate change and the ecological crisis have come to the fore in recent years. In an interview, Qingzhi Huan, professor of comparative politics in Beijing, China and a proponent of eco-socialist policies, gives insights into the Chinese debates and how environmental policies and approaches to environmental protection have changed over the past decades. Karl Polanyi’s masterpiece published in 1944, The Great Transformation (TGT), has inspired a lot of research in social and political sciences, in sociology, anthropology, and economics. Our first symposium, organized by Global Dialogue and the president of the International Karl Polanyi Society, Andreas Novy, celebrates the 75th anniversary of his book. Authors of path-breaking books about Polanyi’s life and work, such as Fred Block, Gareth Dale, Chris Hann and Margaret R. Somers, and experts from different strands of research who are reading Polanyi’s work for our times cover a wide range of topics, from a reflection on the intellectual context which was of relevance for TGT to the analysis of economic, social, and political developments of the last decades...

Karl Polanyi’s masterpiece published in 1944, The Great Transformation (TGT), has inspired a lot of research in social and political sciences, in sociology, anthropology, and economics. Our first symposium, organized by Global Dialogue and the president of the International Karl Polanyi Society, Andreas Novy, celebrates the 75th anniversary of his book. Authors of path-breaking books about Polanyi’s life and work, such as Fred Block, Gareth Dale, Chris Hann and Margaret R. Somers, and experts from different strands of research who are reading Polanyi’s work for our times cover a wide range of topics, from a reflection on the intellectual context which was of relevance for TGT to the analysis of economic, social, and political developments of the last decades through the lens of Polanyi’s perspectives.

Ann Barden Denis died in February 2019. She will be remembered not only for her sociological work in her fields of research, but also for her strong engagement in the ISA, as highlighted by Linda Christiansen-Ruffman, Angela Miles and Marilyn Porters in their tribute to her.

Our second symposium, organized by Karin Scherschel investigates migration, a topic with already a long tradition in sociology which has been drawing a lot of attention in the last few years. This collection of pieces from different countries combines historical perspectives with an analysis of the causes of migration, the situation of migrants and in particular refugees, the contested political regulation, and civil society’s engagement.

Fridays for Future has become a very remarkable social movement against climate change, making the growing protest of young people facing the ecological disaster which threatens the livelihood of the next generation visible. The article by Julia Kaiser and Jasper Stange maps the cross-class approach to mobilizing and coalition-building that is a new development within the environmental movement.

Moustapha Tamba organized a collection of articles from Senegalese sociologists. They focus on the sociology of education and give us deep insights into the organization and accessibility of education and the different types of schools and their regulation.

In our Open Section Bengi Sullu, a youth representative to the United Nations for the ISA reports on the 63rd session of the Commission on the Status of Women which she attended.
