Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP)

Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP)

The Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) is a programme of the International Science Council (ISC), hosted by the University of Bergen. We build independent, critical knowledge and education which can inform policy.

CROP

CROP was established with a secretariat in Bergen in 1993 in order to promote social science research that theorises and provides understanding of poverty in a global context.

CROP has two institutional sponsors, the University of Bergen (UiB) and the International Science Council (ISC) (formerly International Social Science Council). In 2009 the then International Social Science Council (ISSC) signed an agreement with UiB incorporating CROP into the university's academic and administrative environment.

The CROP Secretariat has a scientific director and supporting scientific and administrative staff. Responsibility for the general orientation of the scientific content of the programme falls primarily on the Scientific Committee (SC).

The organisational chart below illustrates CROP's governance and main activities:
