Reducing Old-Age Social Exclusion (ROSEnet)
Event Type:
27 June 2019
Abstract Deadline:
24 April 2019
We are pleased to announce the fourth ROSEnet Training School which will take place in Swansea, Wales from 24th to 27th June 2019 at the Centre for Innovative Ageing, Swansea University (Wales).

A fundamental premise of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to ‘leave no one behind’. This premise has motivated ROSEnet members to come together toward understanding exclusion across the life course, highlighting inequities and taking action toward creating more inclusive societies.

The purpose of the workshop on Policy Challenges in Life Courses of Social Exclusion is to engage with Early Career Investigators to examine links between theory and research in Social Exclusion and the policies and practices that could reduce social exclusion within their own countries and settings. Joining us in this exchange are researchers from ROSEnet and theorists and researchers in life courses of ageing; experts in social policy and practice and advocates for including older people. They will share their expertise about pathways of policy development and work closely with participants toward making the linkages between their own research and policy.

The workshop will take a ‘participatory’ and ‘inclusive’ approach with participants encouraged to contribute at every opportunity – with the mentors, speakers and each other – and produce their own policy brief. At the end of the workshop all participants to be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to link their research with policy and practice. The goal is to bring about real world solutions to all forms of social exclusion.
