Frequently Asked Questions
The Sociological Association of Ireland (SAI) is the professional association for sociologists researching and studying Irish society as well as sociologists working in Ireland and abroad who have an interest in Irish society. The SAI seeks to represent the interests of sociology in Ireland, but is staffed entirely by volunteers, so relies on sociologists to step up and participate in whatever way they can.
Membership benefits include: reduced rates for SAI conferences and events, three copies of the Irish Journal of Sociology per year and free online access, regular newsletters and other publications, access to Study Groups on an array of specialist areas, and an ability to join the committee and participate in the AGM to shape the Association and discipline.
