Poverty must be the central focus of the monograph. Innovative manuscripts are accepted from all disciplines of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome as well as comparative perspectives. Participation of academics from all over the world is expected and submissions from the South are encouraged.
