First Call for Papers:

Shifting to Post-Crisis Welfare States in Europe? – Long Term and Short Term Perspectives

International conference, Berlin, June 4 – 5, 2013

The format of the conference is a combination of plenary keynotes given by some of the most central welfare researchers of today and paper sessions where the work of well-established researchers, post-doctoral researchers and PhD students are discussed. We open up for papers on a variety of topics related to the long- and short-term transformations of welfare states:
