A new Sociology of Development Policy Brief is out! Volume 4, Issue 4 (2019) is “Social Capital and Environmental Migration: Insights from the Brazilian Amazon and Implications for Climate Change” by Heather Randell (Penn State University).
Also, here is a message from our Policy Brief editor Alaka Basu:
The new series of Policy Briefs is being edited by me for the Sociology of Development section of ASA. 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.
