NCVO/VSSN Researching the Voluntary Sector Conference: Call for papers
We are pleased to announce that the NCVO/VSSN Researching the Voluntary Sector Conference has now been confirmed as taking place on 10-11 September at the University of Birmingham.
The event is the primary UK conference for the voluntary sector research community. It brings together academics, practitioners and policymakers with a shared interest in the voluntary sector and voluntary action. Many of our delegates are from overseas, providing a real opportunity for networking with researchers from different countries and contexts.
Our aim is simple: to provide the opportunity to share new, emerging research, and then to make the most of the evidence base by connecting researchers with the policymakers and practitioners who use research.
The conference is your ‘open space’ to share new and existing research, so this call for papers is an open invitation to all researchers working on or with the sector.
We are inviting proposals - either for individual papers or entire sessions (2-3 papers or a panel) which address the three main aims of the conference:
- To inform and assist the work of practitioners
- To inform and influence policy
- To share the fruits of recent research and theory-building
