The seminar series on civil society and its organizations

The purpose of the cross disciplinary seminar series is to provide a meeting point and a discussion platform where research on (broadly defined) civil society and its organizational dimensions can be presented and discussed. Interest in civil society is growing among social scientists, and our ambition has been to create a forum for both dissemination of research and exchange of ideas, where scholars from different disciplines and universities can “talk civil society” with like-minded colleagues.

The seminar takes place two or three times each semester, and is based on different types of texts and presentations such as: papers-in-progress, new publications or planned/on-going research projects.
