Scientific Portfolio

Scientific Portfolio

CROP seeks to produce and disseminate high-quality knowledge on the causes, effects and eradication of poverty.

As CROP does not have its own in-house team of researchers, its involvement in scientific projects results from initiatives whereby CROP collaborates with key partners whose research staff are closely involved in the project.

Current projects and ongoing cooperation:

  • CROP/UiB-UKZN-CODESRIA
    A 4-year cooperative Project from 2017-2020 between the University of Bergen in Norway (represented by CROP), the University of Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa, and network partner CODESRIA (Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa). Funded by SIU (Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education).

  • CONICET-CEIL-CROP/ISSC
    Long-term collaboration initiated in 2017 between the National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina (CONICET), represented by the Labour Research and Study Centre (CEIL), and the International Social Science Council (ISSC), represented by CROP.

  • Sustainability Science
    An emerging field that CROP has been working on since 2013 with the purpose of identifying theoretical and methodological tools to respond to global challenges such as poverty, climate change and sustainable development for all. Particular collaboration with colleagues at the HEMIL Centre, UiB Global and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.

  • Visualising Poverty Research
    Launched by CROP in September 2014 to disseminate poverty research to a wider audience using video interviews published on CROP's YouTube channel.
