Poverty, Inequality Dynamics, and Economic Development: Tensions and Trade-offs in Mixed Methods Research

The workshop focuses on mixed-method research on poverty, inequality, and economic development, as well as on their interactions. It thus addresses three of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals: SDG1 (no poverty), SDG8 (decent work and economic growth), and SDG10 (reduced inequalities). It aims to explore the scope for mixed-method approaches to studying poverty, inequality, and economic development, as well as their interactions. It will do this with a call for papers in three areas:

  • mixed-method approaches to the measurement of poverty (including vulnerability/resilience), inequality, and economic development, and the exploration of the linkages between these concepts;
  • mixed-method approaches to researching the dynamic interaction between poverty, inequality, and economic development and structural transformation, extending to evaluation of interventions designed to address this interaction;
  • mixed-method approaches to the study of relational aspects of poverty extended to social relations, social networks, capture of power within relationships, and social-ecological relationships;

We invite proposals for paper presentations on each of the topics above. Proposals from both senior and junior researchers will be considered, including PhD students. The workshop will be held at Kings College London. No fees will be charged for the workshop and coffee and lunch are included.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: 31st January 2018 [SUBMISSION FORM IS NOW CLOSED]

The abstract must not exceed one page and must include: the title of the proposed paper; a presentation of the subject; the central argument; which theme (i-iii) it fits in; the main research questions and/or hypotheses; and key references. A CV no longer than one page must also be submitted.

The organisers will notify accepted participants of their selection by 1 March 2018 with guidelines for the format of the final paper to be submitted by 1 August 2018.
