CEDAR's 11th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

CEDAR's BI-ANNUAL CONFERENCE, ENTITLED 'PARTNERSHIP AND COLLABORATION' WILL BE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK ON 13th AND 14th MARCH 2006.

 

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Partnership and collaboration are central processes within much research and practice in the social sciences. There is increasing interest in developing multi-disciplinary approaches to complex issues drawing upon the strengths of different research traditions. Services such as education are also increasing the level of collaboration, from policy to practice, including different professional groups, together with parents and children. The development of children's services provides new structural arrangements which will require effective collaborative practice. The CEDAR conference will, as usual, welcome a wide range of inputs reporting research and practice, and their links with policy. We welcome studies researching policy development and implementation, and the effectiveness of collaboration and partnerships. We welcome contributions from researchers from the spectrum of social science disciplines, practitioners and policy makers, and those working in inter-agency or inter-disciplinary teams.

We invite papers and symposia on the following, and related, themes: development and evaluation of new government initiatives that include partnership and collaboration;

  • improving the participation of those with special educational needs through collaborative support;
  • partnership schemes with parents;
  • partnership and collaboration in the arts and cultural sector;
  • collaboration in the professions and workplace;
  • critical analysis of methodology and conceptualization of collaboration and partnership.

Offers of papers and symposia on these, and related topics, should be sent to the conference secretary by 16th December 2005, accompanied by an abstract of 250 words either by e-mail to A.J.Baker@warwick.ac.uk or on disc (Microsoft Word).
