New Interdisciplinary Scholar Networks to build better social welfare research
Date:6/8/2011

ng the coming year.

The Employment Instability, Family Well-being and Social Policy Network will enhance the capacity of the field to study employment instability at the lower end of the labor market and to develop and evaluate interventions aimed at reducing employment instability and its effects on children and families. Joined by a steering committee of 12 scholars from the fields of social work, human development, psychology, economics, public policy and sociology, principal investigators Susan Lambert and Heather Hill will organize a broad network of researchers, employers and policy professionals to stimulate research designed to inform both employer practice and public policy. The network's planned activities include convening a conference on conceptualizing and measuring employment instability, awarding pilot research grants, and providing training on the development and evaluation of workplace interventions and law.

The steering committee for this network are scholars from the Center for Economic and Policy Research, Center for Law and Social Policy, Congressional Budget Office, City University of New York, Penn State, University of California Los Angeles, University of Washington School of Social Work, and the University of Chicago's Harris School of Public Policy Studies and SSA. The network will be open to a broad set of affiliates, and in September will solicit members to join the network through an online process.

The STI and HIV Intervention Network will conduct research on the biological, behavioral and structural factors that heighten vulnerability to sexually transmitted infections and HIV among ethnic minority communities in the United States, and will develop and evaluate interventions to alleviate existing STI/HIV disparities. The network, led by principal investigator Dexter Voisin and co-principal investigators Alida Bouris and Matthew Epperson, will work with 10 scholars representing the fields of social work, psych
