Dr. Astrid Skjerven

Past Conference

  • Messina, Italy, 2018
  • Report on Track OS2-8a Gender, inclusivity and human rights
  • Chairs: Gabriella Arcese, Astrid Skjerven, Marzia Traverso

It was the first time that the theme was put on the agenda of the ISDRS conference. The four presentations represented very different topics: migration, gender equality and integration of disabled people. In all, they displayed thecomplexity and relevance of the theme. Methodologically, two presented major statistical investigations, two qualitative studies. The level of the presentations were generally high.

They contributions displayed the need for more knowledge on all aspects of the theme. It is therefore of vital importance to include it in ISDRS next conferences.
