Central European University will host the ISA Research Committee on Poverty, Social Welfare and Social Policy (RC19) annual conference in Budapest, Hungary (August 22-24, 2013).
The RC 19 annual conference brings together international scholars in the field of comparative welfare state and social policy studies, and encompasses a range of disciplines, including sociology, social policy, political science, and policy studies. RC 19 conference sessions are organized to reflect on the specific conference theme and also to discuss the ongoing research projects of RC 19 members.
The Conference Theme
There is growing academic attention and policy interest dedicated to the twin notions of social exclusion and inclusion and the place of these concepts in broader social policy thinking. The debates around these terms reach out and connect two distinctive academic circles: one that organizes itself around issues of welfare and social policy, and the other which centers on anti-discrimination and human rights agendas. The two communities are connected by a number of intellectual channels and actions in academic and policy thinking. One of the most inspiring of these intersecting grounds of thinking is promoted by the concept of recognition and redistribution struggles. Another distinctive bridging avenue is paved by theories of intersecting inequalities (most often understood by class, gender, and race/ethnicity but not exclusively) claiming voice in very different disciplines. The conference encourages papers which investigate the main social categories/mechanisms by which inequalities are constituted, legitimized, questioned, and tackled in diverse societies. Beyond this general theme, as in previous RC19 annual conferences, RC 19 members are also encouraged to submit paper proposals presenting their ongoing social policy research.
