      PaulPeter. The IRSA constitution clarifies the rules for memberships. I would suggest to first seek out one of the regional and multi-national associations for membership. These are Australasian Agri-food Research Network (AFRN), Asian Rural Sociology Association (ARSA), Latin American Rural Sociology Association (ALASRU), European Society for Rural Sociology (ESRS) and finally Rural Sociological Society (RSS).
      All the best, webmaster
