European Network for the Sociological and Demographic Study of Divorce

19th Annual Meeting, October 13-15, 2021 - Online


For about two decades, the members of the European Network for the Sociological and Demographic Study of Divorce have organized annual conferences to discuss research on the causes, consequences, and contexts of divorce, relationship dissolution, remarriage, and marital conflicts. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s conference will be held in a digital format, via Zoom.

We especially invite contributions on:

  • Causes, Consequences, and Contexts of Union Dissolutions, as well as Remarriage

  • Micro-level Dynamics of Separation Processes, Relationship Quality, and Couple Conflicts

Given the timeliness of the topic, we also encourage submissions on

  • Changes in Partnerships and Family Lives during the COVID-19 pandemic 

We welcome papers from a sociological, demographic, psychological, economic, social policy, or an interdisciplinary perspective.

 

Abstract submission

Please submit a short abstract (max. 200 words) and an extended abstract (2-3 pages with max. 2000 words) via EasyChair.

The submission deadline is April 30, 2021. All submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee.

Authors will be notified until July 1, 2021. Abstracts that are not accepted for oral presentation might be included in the poster session.

The participation in the conference will be free of charge.
