Europeanization of Sociology
Is there a causal relationship between the accessions of the neighbor countries Slovenia and Austria to the European Union on the formation and development of sociology as an European scientific discipline? This study in a comparative perspective provides extensive empirical evidence for the institutional dynamics of Europeanization in regard to the social sciences. Results have shown that within an European context, sociology is working under new restrictions but also encounters enabling opportunities. Trans-national co-operation of scholars contributes to a stock of knowledge more and more known as European sociology.
