The Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP), in co-operation with Zed Books, requests proposals for the CROP International Studies in Poverty Prize 2017.
They seek proposals for original, high quality, alternative and critical academic book manuscripts. Works challenging the dominant thinking and knowledge about poverty and providing sound contributions to the eradication and/or prevention of poverty are especially welcomed.
Poverty must be the central focus of the proposed manuscripts. Innovative proposals are accepted from all disciplines of the social sciences and the humanities. CROP is especially (but not exclusively) interested in the themes of Poverty and Human Rights, Gender Disparity, Policy Innovation and Global Justice.
