About the Journal of Poverty and Public Policy

In 2018, the Center for Social Concerns became the home of the Journal of Poverty and Public Policy, a journal of the Policy Studies Organization published by Wiley. As an academic institute committed to better understanding and reducing poverty, the Center is a hub for intellectual engagement around the causes, consequences, and responses to poverty in local and global communities. The Journal of Poverty and Public Policy provides a platform for scholars around the world to share exemplary peer-reviewed research, enacting the Center’s aim to apply scholarship for the common good and address the preferential option for the poor.
