A new Sociology of Development Policy Brief is out! Volume 4, Issue 1 (2019) is “Broadband Internet, Fertility and Work from Home” by Francesco C. Billari (Universita’ Bocconi), Osea Giuntella (University of Pittsburgh), and Luca Stella (Universita’ Bocconi and IZA).
Also, here is a message from our Policy Brief editor Alaka Basu:
Here (at last!) is the first of the new series of Policy Briefs being edited by me, Alaka Basu, for the Sociology of Development section of ASA.
Our first policy brief is titled: “Broadband Internet, Fertility and Work from Home” by Francesco C. Billari, Osea Giuntella and Luca Stella (2019, volume 4, issue 1).
The plan now is to have one brief out every month, so I welcome expressions of interest. While I am open to any ideas you have, your pitch should ideally include a reference to something you have published on the subject, so that we can assume a base level of peer reviewing of the material.
