Call for submissions: Reducing Poverty and its Consequences

Springer is calling for submissions to our new Collection on Reducing Poverty and Its Consequences, in support of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and the UN Sustainable Development Goals: SDG1 and SDG10.

As one of the most enduring and complex social problems in the world, poverty, and its eradication, must be addressed through a variety of research and practice domains including social, behavioral, and public health perspectives. This Collection aims to synthesize and integrate these perspectives in order to provide a holistic overview of systemic structures buttressing poverty, along with poverty-reduction methods, interventions, and the harmful consequences of poverty, as well as highlight future research directions and gaps in our knowledge.
Our goal for this Collection is to create a cross-disciplinary space for researchers and educators working within and across social, behavioral, and public health paradigms to address this significant global issue. We hope to bring together scholarship that supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), explores policy and community issues, and makes a difference to the mental health and well-being of people living in or recovering from living in poverty.
