Call for papers: The COVID-19 Pandemic and Social Cohesion across the Globe
Together with Mandi Larsen and Georgi Dragolov, ISQOLS member Jan Delhey organizes a special issue of the journal Frontiers in Sociology on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on social cohesion.
Contributors are encouraged to address the impact of the pandemic on aspects of social cohesion, such as:
- Social relations and loneliness;
- Trust in others;
- Attitudes towards diversity;
- Identification and feelings of connection to society;
- Institutional trust, particularly in political institutions;
- Inequality, exclusion and polarization;
- Solidarity and helpfulness;
- Civic and political engagement.
The editors particularly welcome original empirical contributions making use of quantitative data and, ideally, involving a comparative perspective. We seek to cover a broad range of countries, regions, and cultures, with a special interest in those that typically do not receive extensive attention in the literature (e.g., the Global South).
The timeline is as follows:
· Abstract submission: 28 February 2022
- Manuscript submission: 31 May 2022
