Organising for a philosophy of internationalism and multidisciplinarity in the social sciences: the case of CROP, the comparative research programme on poverty
MetadataShow full item record
Projects come and projects go in the social sciences. But there are few international, multi-disciplinary, long-term research programmes which survive outside an institutional framework for any length of time. This is not accidental. Universities and research institutions in the social sciences are not organised for the complex challenges of the real and multi-faceted world - and the real world is growing increasingly complex through internationalisation. In the following is described a hitherto untried model of cooperation and development of research across disciplinary and national boundaries, using the knowledge accumulated in disciplinary and national studies as stepping stones into an open arena for poverty researchers and comparative poverty studies in developed and developing countries.
