This conference will explore the widespread domestic, transnational and international communication about social policy since 1850. It aspires to bring together a variety of new findings on how foreign and international ideas about social policy have been assimilated, transformed or rejected in this process of communication. It thereby seeks to serve as an illustrative platform for further research into this important area.
An international group of established scholars and advanced post-graduate students from a variety of disciplines, including history, sociology and political science, have committed to explore global connections about social policy, including those between extra-European and European states, transnational networks of experts and colonies and metropoles, amongst others. In addition, participants will explore the role of transnational and international fora, including the League of Nations, the World Health Organisation and similar bodies, in this exchange.v
More information, including the programme, is available on the conference website.
