Special Issue 75 – Emerging Research / Édition Spéciale 75 – Nouvelles Recherches

 

 "CRSP is pleased to launch our first issue devoted to the scholarship of graduate students in Social Policy / Social Work.   

 The articles in this issue demonstrate a keen commitment to social policy and equity issues in relation to how history, culture, workers, and youth are positioned and shaped to keep dominant voices, ideas and actors at the helm of public life."  

"RCPS est ravie de présenter sa toute première édition dédiée au travail de recherché des étudiants de cycles supérieurs en politique sociale et en travail social. 

Les articles dans cette édition démontrent un engagement indéfectible pour la politique sociale et les questions d’équité reliées à l’histoire, à la culture, aux travailleuses et travailleurs, et aux jeunes qui sont positionnés et configurés afin de garder les voix, les idées, et les acteurs dominants en charge de la vie publique." 

- Anne O'Connell, Co-Editor, Special Issue 75
