When the word goes about social changes, political and economic issues are most often emphasized. However, we should also have in mind the social changes that have been taking place in the social structure; the research of these changes is a task of social sciences, and especially a task of sociology. Social changes are a dynamic aspect of social structure and they concern both the structures that have been appearing (not completely formed) and the structures that are disappearing (still existing, but without previous main functions). The vagueness of the structural elements represents one of the key factors of intensity and dynamics of the process of social changes. One of the goals of the social sciences is certainly the research of various aspects of social structure (demographic, professional, spatial, organizational, political, economic, cultural, etc), especially its vertical dimension (unequal distribution of wealth, power and esteem), in order to understand the most important social changes and their role.
Possible topics to be explored in the proceedings may include, but are not limited to analysis of structural changes of Serbian society. We encourage authors to explore the cultural, political, social, economic or other aspects of structural changes of contemporary societies, regardless of the country they are coming from. Papers with comparative approach are more than welcomed.
