The Canadian Review of Social Policy has just re-located to Toronto. The
Editorial Board is re-invigorating the journal by focusing on the
transformational questions embedded in social policy debates. We also commit
ourselves to rigorous administrative practices. The CRSP Editorial Board
holds deep commitment to understanding the changing terrain, to reading the
moments that appear before us. We seek to build generative spaces and themes
that will contribute to a cross-fertilization of ideas and practices.
The Editorial Board will build a Dialogue Project over the next year
reflecting on the shape of social policy and the avenues through which such
policy is explored. We will create opportunities for face-to-face dialogue,
activists, academics and community practitioners.
It is time to articulate our experiences with alternatives. Please participate.
Your support is critical as we advance into this dialogue, engaging
with transformative questions and profiling the opportunities emerging in the
twenty-first century. Join us in our efforts to transform social policy into
a project capable of steering the difficult course towards social equality
and justice for everyone.
