ISSP 2015 Annual Meeting

25 April 2015

The International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) is a continuing annual programme of cross-national collaboration on surveys covering topics important for social science research. It brings together pre-existing social science projects and coordinates research goals, thereby adding a cross-national, cross-cultural perspective to the individual national studies.

The ISSP 2015 Annual Meeting will be hosted by the Democracy, Governance and Service Delivery unit of the Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa. The event takes place at the Cape Town Lodge Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa from 25 to 29 April 2015.

Registration will be done via a registration form. Please note that participation is restricted to ISSP members.

The organising committee is delighted to invite the ISSP community to the 2015 Annual Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. The city is situated at the southern-most tip of the African Continent and is blessed with scenic beauty, unparalleled botanical splendour and is, due to moderate climatic conditions, a year-round destination.

We will do our best to offer you enjoyable surroundings and an effective meeting.
