Can We End Poverty?
Event's details
January 29, 2015

All Day Event
Location: Columbia University, New York City, NY -10027



On January 8, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson delivered a State of the Union address to Congress in which he declared an "unconditional war on poverty in America." Johnson’s goal was not only to "relieve the symptom of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Since then, federal and state governments have spent more than $19 trillion fighting poverty. But what has really been accomplished with all of that funding?

2014 Fall Research Conference Theme

PRINT PAGE
Abt Associates

The APPAM Fall Research Conference is a multi-disciplinary annual research conference that attracts the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues. The conference is comprised of panels, roundtables, workshops, symposia and poster presentations and is designed to encourage substantive interaction among participants. 

The 2014 Fall Research Conference is being held from November 6 - 8 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Conference Theme: Global Challenges, New Perspectives

Policymakers around the world face complex challenges – challenges such as climate change, increased migration, lingering effects of the Great Recession, population aging, changes in family formation, growth in the demand for educated workers, rising health care costs, and increased economic, political, and social inequality. The theme of this year’s conference is what we can do to address these challenges, drawing on our knowledge base in public policy analysis and management but also bringing in new perspectives – in particular, from other disciplines and other countries.

APPAM has always emphasized including diverse participants and perspectives in the Fall Research Conference. This year, we will continue to expand on that diversity by encouraging papers, panels, and roundtables that include presenters, chairs, and discussants from a range of disciplines (such as public policy, social policy, public administration, management, economics, sociology, education, public health, social work, psychology, statistics, history, political science, environmental sciences, science and technology, and others) and countries. As policy challenges become increasingly complex and global, the goal of the conference is to make sure we draw on the widest range of knowledge to understand those challenges and help formulate appropriate responses.
