ESPAnet Conference article collection

The collection of articles below, including the Journal of Poverty and Social Justice special issue, is free to access throughout September to mark the 2019 Annual ESPAnet Conference taking place 5-7 September in Stockholm on the topic of ‘Social Citizenship, Migration and Conflict – Equality and opportunity in European welfare states’.

The idea for the Journal of Poverty and Social Justice special issue on ‘Self-employment and social protection in Europe’ (Vol. 27 Iss. 2, June 2019) emerged out of a stream on self-employment and social protection at the 2017 ESPAnet conference in Lisbon. The issue is guest edited by Kevin Caraher and Enrico Reuter.
