Selected Issues of Contemporary Social Policy – Between Science And Practice ISBN 978–83-64581–36-6

The pub­li­ca­tion presents the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal social pol­icy prob­lems and its links to such issues as the inter­gen­er­a­tional trans­fer of edu­ca­tional cap­i­tal, tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tion, the job decency and its future, or the new social risk of depen­dency. At the same time it responds to the need to dis­sem­i­nate the find­ings of the lat­est sci­en­tific research, includ­ing those car­ried out by the Insti­tute of Labour and Social Stud­ies. It also aims to raise aware­ness of the processes that deter­mine the con­duct of social pol­icy and to show the inter­face between sci­ence and prac­tice. At the same time it refers to a series of debates pro­mot­ing knowl­edge on social pol­icy — “Between Sci­ence and Prac­tice”, orga­nized by the Insti­tute of Labour and Social Stud­ies (ILSS).
