Call for Book Proposals - New Series 'Research in Comparative and Global Social Policy'
Policy Press is delighted to announce a new series on Research in Comparative and Global Social Policy
In a world that is rapidly changing, increasingly connected and uncertain, there is a need to develop a shared applied policy analysis of welfare regimes. Through a unique combination of comparative and global social perspectives, books in this series will address broad questions around how nation states and transnational policy actors deal with globally shared challenges.
Seeking to provide evidence based good practice to aid in shaping future social policies and cross the bridge between academic research and research developed in and by international organisations, this series will be of interest to academics and students in a wide range of disciplines and subject areas as well as staff of international organisations and other individuals involved in the processes of supranational and global social policy making. For more details please go to the Research in Comparative and Global social Policy page on the website www.policypress.co.uk/research-comparative-global-social-policy.
Call for book proposals
Proposals are invited for books that include one or a range of the following: country case studies within a multi-level governance/scales frame; small, medium and large_N comparative studies that analyse social policy development and change, and global social policy studies that address various fields of social policy in their transnational or global dimensions. We particularly encourage original authored monographs based on cross-disciplinary and multi-method research that develops theoretical frameworks reaching across individual world-regions and global actors.
