EVENT & CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Ten Years of Poverty Research (CPRC)
From 8-10 September 2010, the Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC) will celebrate ten years of poverty research with an international conference hosted by the Brooks World Poverty Institute (BWPI) at the University of Manchester. This event will bring together leading poverty researchers and actors for poverty reduction to:
- review the ‘state of the art’ in poverty reduction;
- showcase CPRC’s key research findings on chronic poverty;
- set the research and policy agenda on poverty research for the next 10 years (2010-2020).
The conference will take place just two weeks before the UN General Assembly convenes to review progress towards achieving the MDGs.
CPRC welcomes the submission of papers that conceptually explore poverty dynamics; present empirical studies on poverty reduction; explain new methodologies of measuring multi-dimensional poverty; and/or inform policymaking in poverty reduction. [more information]
Deadline for abstracts: January 31, 2010
