Restructuring the ISA - Pre-Vote Instructions for the Members of the Assembly of Councils

Dear Member of Assembly of Councils [RC10 Delegate I.Da Costa]:
Following detailed discussions over the last year, the ISA Executive Committee has voted to propose changes to the organization of our association. The proposed changes involve the re-composition of the program committee for World Congresses that will give wider representation to Research Committees and National Associations and enable future ISA Presidents to play a more direct role in shaping World Congress programs. If the proposals pass then they will take effect at the 2014 World Congress in Yokohama.
The proposals involve changes to the ISA Statutes and By-laws. This requires a vote from the Assembly of Councils, which is composed of the representatives of Research Committees and National Associations (in good standing).
Details of the change can be found at http://www.isa-sociology.org/restructuring-of-the-isa/ where you will find the details of the proposed changes, rationales for and against the changes and the corresponding modifications to the ISA Statutes and By-laws. I urge you to study these documents with care and consult with your members about these changes. All 4 documents are in the three official languages of the ISA, but the English version will govern in case of ambiguity. At this same website you can add your comments and questions.
The ISA Secretariat will send the electronic ballot out in a few days to your address, but if you wish us to send the ballot to a different address please let Izabela Barlinska, ISA Executive Secretary, isa@isa-sociology.org, know immediately. You will have 90 days to register your vote.
Best wishes,
Michael Burawoy

ISA President
