Brief History of CROP

Brief History of CROP

Institutional background

The Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) was initiated by the International Social Science Council (ISSC) in 1992 with support from the University of Bergen (UiB). In 1993 the CROP Secretariat was established as a unit hosted by UiB. In the course of the last 25 years, the Secretariat has been affiliated with various different units at the university (Christian Michelsen Institute (1993-1995), Centre for International Poverty Research (1995-2004), Centre for Development Studies (2004-2007), UNIFOB GLobal (2007-2010), and UiB Global (2010-2016)). CROP is currently placed directly under the University Director's Office.
