SALZBURG CONFERENCE IN INTERDISCIPLINARY POVERTY RESEARCH
The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research (CEPR) organizes an annual Conference in Interdisciplinary Poverty Research since 2013. In past years conferences covered the topics of child poverty (2016), absolute poverty in Europe (2015), and ethical issues in poverty alleviation (2014). The focus theme of the 2017 conference is religion and poverty. These conferences are interdisciplinary and open to all interested researchers, practitioners and policy makers. They aim to bring together current research on poverty, inequality and social exclusion and to discuss policies and other measures of poverty alleviation. All abstracts that are submitted to be included in the conference program will be reviewed.
The Organizing Committee invites submissions of proposals for single papers and thematic panels in all areas of poverty research but special attention will be given to those concerned with the annual focus theme. Possible topics for the general theme sessions are, among others, current trends in poverty, inequality and social exclusion, poverty trends of different groups (minorities, age, gender, disability, unemployment), analysis of the economic, social and cultural processes underlying poverty, the effects of poverty on health, well-being, education, and inclusion, conceptualizations of poverty, methodologies of poverty research, the effectiveness of poverty alleviation measures and policy responses, and research on safety nets and welfare.
The conference is open to all disciplines (development studies, sociology, economics, anthropology, social medicine, geography, political science, legal studies and the humanities), approaches, methods and concepts within the field of poverty research, and papers coming from an inter-, trans- or multidisciplinary background are particularly welcomed. Both research papers of empirical, theoretical or conceptual nature and policy papers are welcomed. If you have any questions regarding your submission please contact us. All proposals will be reviewed.
The Salzburg Conference in Interdisciplinary Poverty Research aims at bringing together estbalished as well as young scholars and academics from diverse backgrounds. Submissions of scholars working in the Global South are particularly encouraged and their participation is supported by a subsidized registration fee.
Each speaker will have 20 minutes for presentation followed by 10 minutes of discussion. We welcome submissions for individual papers as well as for panels (consisting of three or four papers).
