are pleased to invite you to

4th International Conference of ESPAnet Poland
 
SOCIAL POLICY: CONTROVERSIES AND PARADOXES

Social policy is a place where various theories are confronted. These are based on different research findings, viewpoints, attitudes and values. Nothing is obvious and unambiguous. Every action is taken in order to change social reality, but many questions stay unanswered, e.g.: what shall we aim at? What tools may be used? Who should be responsible for social tasks performance? Disparate research strategies and outlooks provide numerous answers that are often contradictory or controversial. Actions undertaken frequently cause unexpected or even paradoxical results.

During the conference we would like to focus on following topics:

  • what controversies appear in separate social policy fields?
  • what choices and alternative solutions occur in social policy?
  • what unexpected results are or might be caused by social tasks performance?


We invite you to take a creative look at fascinating diversity of contemporary social policy.

The conference will take place in Wroclaw, on 25-27th of September 2017.
