Conference theme

Historical analysis brings us to the issue that social protection (rights), a man's social status, is determined by his level of participation in society. The introduction of the market economy in post-Soviet countries led to obvious institutional changes - ownership of property, protected by civil rights, was introduced; establishment of a modern election system for the President, members of Parliament and municipality representatives (a new body for Azerbaijan, introduced in 1999). In terms of social rights, the most significant change has resulted from the economic need to shift from universal systems of welfare towards a more targeted system of support.

Social Protection Conference will be held on a national level at targeting civil society, NGOs and State bodies, to come together for the purposes to learn more about Social Protection and Policy-making, with regards to the 5 (five) typical areas of social policy such as housing, education, health, social security/employment and personal social services. Another objective of the conference is to invite presentations from NGOs, researchers and academicians working in these fields, who can present needs-based evidence and policy recommendations and to discuss the key issues in these five areas. There will five panels per each social policy area mentioned above.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for a presentation and/or the production of your research on the following areas describing situations/cases/policies/policy recommendations from/about Azerbaijan:

1. Housing;
2. Education;
3. Health;
4. Social security/employment;
