The International Sociological Association's Research Committee on Poverty, Social Welfare and Social Policy (RC19) will hold its annual academic conference at the Central European University, hosted by the Center for Policy Studies (CPS). CPS is delighted to invite you to the 2013 RC19 annual conference in Budapest, Hungary.

The RC 19 annual conference brings together international scholars in the field of comparative welfare state and social policy studies, and encompasses a range of disciplines, including sociology, social policy, political science, and policy studies.
