Call for Papers on the Political Economy of Children’s Health
International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies
This is a call for proposed submissions to a special issue on the political economy of children’s health (ages 0-18). We are particularly interested in national case studies on how the politics and economics of the nation -- channelled through public policy -- come to affect the health of children. We expect that the articles will consider:
a) how the economic system, through its distribution of income and wealth, comes to affect the health of children;
b) how the politics of a nation shapes the operation of the economic system that distributes income and wealth amongst families, thereby affecting the health of children;
c) how additional public policy sectors such as employment and working conditions, support for early child development, provision of basic needs of food and housing and access to health and social services comes to affect the health of children.
Please submit an abstract of 200-250 words to either to either Toba Bryant (email@example.com) or Dennis Raphael (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for abstract submission is March 31, 2014. Abstracts will be reviewed by April 15, 2014 with invitation offered to submit articles of 8000-9000 words by the deadline of September 1, 2014.
