Journal of Poverty and Public Policy

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.
