Equality Diversity and Inclusion Conference 2012


5th Equality, Diversity and Inclusion International Conference, 2012, Toulouse, France

23-25 July, 2012, Toulouse Business School

Conference theme: country and comparative perspectives on equality, diversity and inclusion

The 5th EDI conference will be held in Toulouse, Southwest France, 23-25 July 2012. It will provide an exciting forum for encounters and publication projects in a stimulating intellectual, cultural and historical environment.

A wide range of streams is being welcome about all types of research questions and strands of diversity. However, regardless the area and research question of the stream, at paper submission stages, authors of empirical papers will be invited to provide a section albeit brief, about the country or countries of data collection. Transnational streams and papers involving multiple countries will be welcome to this conference. However the indications above should not be seen as limitative in terms of stream themes and approaches.

There will be a doctoral workshop under the supervision of Professor Judith Pringle and Annie Cornet.

The 2012 edition also welcomes pre-conference workshops to be held July 23.
