The UK Social Policy Association are happy to announce our

Social Policy Digital Festival Week

13-17 July 2020

We are delighted to invite you all to come together and celebrate social policy at our online digital festival. As we are unable to come together in July in person, we are running an online series of events in the week 13th– 17th July to give us a time to connect as a social policy community.

We will still explore our Conference Theme: ‘Beyond the echo-chamber: a vision for social policy’. We wish to highlight the value of policy and practice, of integrating social policy domains both nationally and internationally, and reflecting on the interdependent nature of human existence and the importance of interdisciplinarity in light of current challenges.

We have integrated a small number of doctoral students to present their work and receive comment and feedback from peers into our festival, as supporting early career researchers is a key focus for the SPA. These events will be held online – most likely on Zoom – on the 13th and 14th of July 2020.

What will follow from 15th -17th July is a mixture of lectures, videos and panel discussions.

We will send a full programme out soon and tell you how you can get involved.

All SPA members and any of your friends or colleagues are welcome to come along, share and connect with the social policy community. Bring your wellies!
