Date:7/16/2012

Academics from all over the world gather in York this week for one of the most significant conferences of social policy researchers in the UK in recent times. Two of the biggest social policy associations in the world - the Social Policy Association (SPA) and the East Asian Social Policy research network (EASP) have joined forces to host 'Social Policy in an Unequal World', which opens today (Monday 16 July) at the University of York.
