International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE)

Health and Social Protection

Good health is an important component of individual well-being. The potential of health and social protection to contribute to human development, poverty reduction and inclusive growth has been increasingly recognized throughout the last two decades.

The section seeks to contribute to the development of inclusive social protection and health systems by 

  • Taking a global perspective,

  • Engaging in interdisciplinary research beyond the social sciences,

  • Bridging the gap between research and practice by combining rigorous academic research with high societal relevance

 

Main Research Areas
  • Political economy and institutional analysis of social protection and health system reforms (read more)

  • Social protection, health, and technology: Interactions between technological and institutional change

  • Multisectoral coordination within a One-Health Approach
