The internal workshop on the diffusion of Global Social Policy will mark the first stage of a collaboration of all projects in the A pillar of the CRC 1342. We will use a network approach to understand the effect of exposure to previous adopters on the diffusion of welfare policies across the globe and each project will participate with their own set of indicators. The goal is to create a comprehensive, unified comparison between policy fields.
