Istituto di Sociologia Internazionale di Gorizia (ISIG): Partner 33


Istituto di Sociologia Internazionale di GoriziaThe Institute of International Sociology of Gorizia (Isig) is a non-profit research and cultural institution founded in 1968. Since 1985 it has ‘juridical personality’ (personalità giuridica). Its Scientific Committee is composed of distinguished scholars from national and foreign Universities and cultural institutions. The president is Giandomenico Picco, former vice secretary of the United Nations. The director is Alberto Gasparini, professor of sociology in the University of Trieste. The scientific and cultural activity of the Institute covers a broad range of topical areas and is carried out in six departments and research programmes: International Sociology; Technology and the Future; Sociology of Space; Mass Emergencies; Social Policies. A research laboratory assists the departments in fieldwork. Isig publishes two journals, ‘Isig Magazine’ and ‘Futuribili’, and special collections of books. The research “Living with floods” will be carried out by the Mass Emergencies Programme (PEM). The Programme was established in 1976, after the Friuli earthquake and has as its main focus the study of human systems under collective stress due to events (or threats) originating either from natural or technological disasters. The Programme, headed by Bruna De Marchi, is organised as a network and has stable contacts with a large number of organisations and institutions all over the world. It is involved in a number of international, national and regional projects. The PEM is endowed with a library of about 4500 titles. Its research activity is documented by a series of preliminary papers (Quaderni), several volumes and many articles in scientific journals.
