Poverty alleviation in Asia: A comparative perspective
Journal of Asian Public Policy Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 15 January 2020
Poverty is multifaceted and long-lasting in many societies. In recent decades, some countries have launched new initiatives to combat poverty and reduce economic insecurity. These initiatives use economic, political, and social policy strategies to mobilize resources, target selected regions or groups, and achieve broad or specific poverty alleviation goals. This special issue seeks to publish a set of rigorous empirical studies on how various Asian countries use similar or different approaches to address poverty and achieve more prosperous and just societies. Adopting a comparative perspective, we are looking for articles that use quantitative or qualitative methods from multiple disciplines to offer updated evidence on poverty alleviation across Asia.
Under Routledge’s Special Issues as Books Scheme, we expect to reprint the special issue in the form of edited volume in London in late 2020.
