CROP Annual Report 2012

2012 was particularly important for CROP. The Programme's long term sustainability was substantially reinforced with the signing of a new contract between the University of Bergen (UiB) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC).

This agreement reveals the growing interest of the sponsors to support the Programme and to intensify their co-operation and commitment in the field of poverty research. The agreement is also consistent with UiB's long term strategy to promote development-related research and its decision to “invest in academic groups that have a high international profile" as CROP does (UiB “Strategy 2011–2015"), thus paving the path towards its incorporation “into the academic programme of the UiB" as it is formally stated in the contract.

The number and quality of joint initiatives carried on by CROP provide the reader with a sense of CROP's impact in the field of poverty research. They also show the synergies produced by day-to-day collaboration with our partners in CROP's academic environment (UiB) and with the world's most important social science network: the ISSC.
