Global Social Policy Journal: Special issue on poverty research

JOURNAL: The latest issue of this journal includes input from many researchers affiliated with CROP.

December 2011

Issue no. 2/3, 2011 of the Global Social Policy Journal features the responses of a number of  scholars to findings and recommendations of UNRISD flagship report "Combating Poverty and Inequality: Structural Change, Social Policy and Politics".

CROP helped UNRISD organize the launch of the report in Norway, 25 November 2010 at NORAD, and  CROP Scientific Committee member Bob Deacon is one of the scholars who offer his response to the report included here.

The double issue also has special focus devoted to the CROP session "Poverty: The Role of Social Research and Social Policy" that was held at the International Social Science Council's first World Social Science Forum, which material has been edited by former CROP Scientific Director Asuncion St. Clair, in co-operation with former CLACSO-CROP Latin American Coordinator Håvard Haarstad. It includes articles by CROP Scientific Committee member Shahra Razavi and CROP Fellows Juliana Martinez Franzoni and Maria Petmesidou.
