At the next IPPA Conference organized by the International Public Policy Association, I will coordinate a session with Raquel Gallego (IGOP/Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) inviting contributions that explore the link between social innovation and empowerment.
The session is entitled “Linking social innovation and empowerment: A public
policy role?” and welcomes proposals assessing the capacity of social innovation to empower women and promote diversity, using an intersectional analytical framework. The panel wants to investigate the role of social innovation in fostering women’s empowerment, with a specific focus on public policies able to enhance citizens’ collective and individual capabilities.
Deadline for submitting an abstract proposal: 29/1/2021
