Comparative and International Development and Social Policy Theories and Methods: Advances in Cross-Disciplinary Research and Practice in India and Beyond
Early Career Academic Winter School on Social Policy in Developing Contexts
Jindal Global Law School, National Capital Region Delhi, India
Centre for Research in Comparative and Global Social Policy, University of York (UK)
Venue: Jindal Global Educational and Professional Academy, NTH Complex, A2 Shaheed Jeet Singh Marg, Qutub Institutional Area, New Delhi, India
Dates: 17- 18 December 2018
The winter school aims to build on previous successful initiatives that have encapsulated recent cutting-edge discussions emerging in the fields of international development studies and social policy in India. Indian Social Policy Network aims to bridge the traditional divides between international development studies and social policy, especially in India. The last decade has seen introduction of measures to universalise welfare provisions such as citizen cards, health insurance, pensions and other social security measures. The cross-disciplinary approach offered by both the disciplines provides the conceptual tools to transcend the binaries of developed and developing contexts and unravel the complexities of new emerging welfare states.
The overall aim is to provide a space for early career researchers to reflect on areas of synergy and tension that emerge from interactions between the disciplines of social policy and international development and explore how these might be addressed and taken forward.
