New Horizons in Social Policy series

The New Horizons in Social Policy series

Series Editors: Dr Patricia Kennett and Dr Misa Izuhara, School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK

The New Horizons in Social Policy Series is designed to capture contemporary issues and debates in social policy and to encourage critical, innovative and thought-provoking approaches to understanding and explaining current trends and developments in social policy. It seeks original contributions from established and emerging researchers on a diverse range of topics influencing social policy. These might include such themes as human security; inter-generational transfers and asset based welfare; the future of social democracy and the welfare state; space, scale and governance; post-communist welfare states; intersectionality and social inequality; actors, movements and conflicts; environment and sustainability.

The development of new and original thinking in social policy is the main emphasis of the series.
Both international and comparative in its approach, this exciting new series aims to include some of the best theoretical and empirical work from both well-established researchers and the next generation of scholars.

Submissions welcome

The audience for the New Horizons in Social Policy Series is global, and books in the series will be essential reading for students, academics and practitioners: in short, anyone with an interest in understanding the contemporary issues affecting social policy in the 21st Century.
We particularly welcome proposals for authored monographs, but will also consider those for edited volumes focusing on relevant topics.
The estimated work lengths for individual projects should be in the region of c.70,000-110,000 words.
