Professions, Power and (In)Justice

Monday, 16 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
RC52 Sociology of Professional Groups (host committee)

Language: English

Power and Justice have been central themes on the study of professions. Contemporary social, economic and political change, clearly challenge and enhance their relevance. Across the globe, professional work has been effected by broader social forces. New forms of professionalism have been associated to the influence of these current trends, translated in ambivalences of reducing/expanding professional power. At the same time, new arrangements of weakening/strengthening inequalities by professions are yet not clearly understood.
