8th Conference of the European Survey Research Association, Zagreb, Croatia, 15th-19th July 2019
Twenty researchers from the SSP faculty and FORS are contributing to the ESRA international conference, showcasing their research collaborations and expertise in the field of survey research and survey methodology.
From the 15th-19th July 2019, the European Survey Research Association (ESRA) will meet in Zagreb, Croatia, for its 8th biennial conference, bringing together close to 900 experts in survey methodology, survey practice and quantitative social science research from across Europe, North America and other parts of the world. This major social science event, which is being hosted by the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Zagreb, is the result of a two year international collaboration led by ESRA Conference Chair, Caroline Roberts (Assistant Professor in the Institute of Social Sciences, director of the joint Masters programme in Public Opinion and Survey Methodology, and co-head of the Life Course and Social Inequalities Research Centre). Caroline Roberts – who is also responsible for a collaborative research programme in survey methodology between members of the SSP faculty and FORS, the Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences – has coordinated the scientific programme for the conference, and worked in close collaboration with the local organisers in Zagreb, other members of the ESRA Committee (based in Europe and North America), and ESRA support staff at the University of Southampton (UK). The theme of the 2019 conference highlights the important contribution of survey research in today’s changing data environment, and is reflected in a programme that includes a total 217 conference sessions, with presentations of 830 scientific research papers, and a number of special sessions including keynote talks and panel discussions, posters and exhibits from major European social science infrastructure projects. Twenty researchers from the SSP faculty and FORS will be contributing to the programme in different ways, including giving short courses, organising sessions, and presenting new research findings, many of which are the result of ongoing collaborations between SSP and FORS.
