RC19 Open Session 2
The Research Committee on Poverty, Social Welfare and Social Policy (RC19) brings together an active and lively community from different fields of social sciences. The purpose is to promote theoretically grounded empirical research on: the sources and character of social problems; the planning and administration of social programs; and more generally, public policies and intervention strategies aimed at alleviating social problems and influencing the society.
For Open Sessions, we invite the submission of any research that falls within the remit of RC19, in particular papers that do not fit into any themed session. Abstracts of no more 500 words outline the primary research question, theoretical approach, methods, data sources, and analytical significance; to be submitted no later than 30 September 2017. Preference will be given to papers that make a strong comparative and/or theoretical contribution to the field; and submissions from advanced doctoral students and junior researchers are particularly encouraged.
