Social Capital, Ethnicity and Health


Tue, 2016-11-01 - Wed, 2016-11-02

Following workshops in Berkeley (2006) Paris (2008), Oslo (2010), Padova (2012) and Toronto (2014), we invite the submission of draft papers or extended abstracts for the sixth workshop of the Global Network on Social Capital and Health. This event will take place in Jerusalem on 1-2 November 2016 and is hosted by the Taub center for social policy studies in Israel, and is organized by Dov Chernichovsky and Chen Sharony. The theme for the 2016 workshop is "Social Capital, Ethnicity and Health".

The workshop is open for contributions, and in particular for contributions that are concerned with identifying causal effects, as opposed to descriptive, associations between measures of social capital and heath. 

Papers for the workshop will be selected on the basis of draft papers or extended abstracts. Although draft papers are preferred, abstracts (minimum 600 words) that describe context, data, methods, preliminary results, and implications will also be considered. The deadline for submitting draft papers or extended abstracts is June 15th 2016.  Papers or abstracts must be submitted electronically (PDF or Word) by email to cheni@post.bgu.ac.il with subject line SOCIAL CAPITAL WORKSHOP. Authors will be notified about acceptance by July 1st 2016 and will be required to provide an electronic version (PDF or Word) of the final paper by September 1st 2016. Papers will be posted on the workshop website in downloadable format. Each paper will have an appointed discussant.

Participants are expected to present a paper and/or act as a discussant. Limited funding is available to cover the costs of accommodation for paper presenters and meals for all conference participants during the workshop. All participants are responsible for their own transportation costs.
