50th Anniversary Conference of the Social Policy Association (SPA)

(7 December 2016)

This year's SPA Annual Conference: 'Social Inequalities: Research, Theory, and Policy - Durham University' will take place from Monday, 10 July to Wednesday, 12 July . 

In the 50th year of the SPA, we are drawing upon the ongoing analysis, challenges and opportunities for social policy research and education.

At a time when income inequality is rising in most countries, and differences between countries remain huge, the social significance of these inequalities is of fundamental importance to societies and therefore research. 

We welcome proposals for papers and symposia which address this topic through the themes mentioned on the Call for Papers. Please see the conference webpage.
