Our section is very pleased to announce the formal launch of our new policy brief series: Sociological Insights for Development Policy. The purpose of the series is not only to raise awareness of the thought-provoking research being done by members of our section, but also to strengthen engagement between scholars, policy makers and development practitioners. Our long-term aim is to enhance sociology’s impact on development discourse and practice throughout the world. For more information about the Sociological Insights for Development Policy series, or if you would like to contribute a brief, please contact Brian Dill at email@example.com.
