The Westermarck Society was founded in 1940 for the preservation of the work and memory of Edward Westermarck and for the advancement of sociology in Finland. The Society arranges regularly the National Meeting (annually) and the Edward Westermarck Memorial Lecture. It organises seminars for sociologists and people interested in sociology. It publishes the quarterly Sosiologia (in Finnish, with English abstracts).
The Westermarck Society is a member of the Nordic Sociological Association (NSF), the European Sociological Association (ESA), and the International Sociological Association (ISA).
