Since 1986, the ISSP has provided high-quality data on attitudes and behaviors on important societal issues such as family, health, work, religion, the role of government, social inequality, the environment, national identity and citizenship, social networks, or leisure and sports.

The newly launched ISSP User Conference Series is designed to provide a platform for the various global research activities based on cross-national ISSP data. It aims to stimulate exchanges between individual researchers, to expand the ISSP research community, to increase the ISSP’s visibility and to inform the global policy discussions on important societal issues.

The ISSP User Conference will be held once a year and will focus on a different main theme each year, starting with Social Inequality in 2022.
