The Network for European Social Policy Analysis is an association of academics involved or interested in the analysis of social policy in Europe. The Network encourages and fosters a multi-disciplinary approach to the analysis of European social policy. It is therefore open to people from a range of disciplines, including social policy, sociology, political science, international relations, history, law and economics.
ESPAnet was established in 2002 to facilitate exchange and co-operation among social policy analysts in Europe and to provide a forum and network of communication for the development of European social policy analysis as a field of research and teaching.
It has the following specific objectives:
- Advancement of knowledge in the field of the analysis of European social policies.
- Stimulating the entry of young researchers into the field and enhancing the development of their knowledge, skills and experience.
- Promotion of a comparative approach to the analysis of social policy in Europe.
- Promotion of an inter- and multi-disciplinary approach to the analysis of social policy.
