Directory of academic societies and professional associations in socio-economic research

The following directory of professional bodies include more than 500 organisations. To document the international character of socio-economic research and account for the fact that ethical and professional codes are much more common in Anglo-Saxon countries, we included organisations from all parts of the world. A special focus, however, was put on the EU and EU accession-states. Organisations are listed according to the countries or regions they are presenting including European wide and international bodies.
