The University College Cork is hosting a Summer School on  Conceptualising and Measuring Poverty: Methods for the 21st Century, which will be held on Campus, over the week beginning 18th to 22nd June, 2012 (see here for programme).  This summer school is one of the Department of Social Protection’s research initiatives which are delivered through the IRCHSS Social Policy Research Development Initiatives.  The UCC Summer School is intended to promote research, the opportunity to exchange knowledge and network in the area of poverty research.  The Summer School is co-hosted by The Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century (ISS21), the School of Applied Social Studies, and the Department of Food Business & Development, UCC.  The Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton, TD, will open the School on the 18th June.

The programme will appeal to all stakeholders with an interest in evaluating and engaging with research in the area of poverty and social inclusion - from the early stage researcher to the expert analyst/practitioner.  It contains an impressive array of national and international expert speakers on poverty and social inclusion matters.  The days’ activities feature a well-balanced mix of conceptual debate and lab-based analysis on data sets.
