The meeting is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and hosted by the School of Social Development and Public Policy, Beijing Normal University.
The U.S.-based research is conducted in collaboration with the Caring Health Center in Springfield, MA, and is part of a three-year, cross-national study. Researchers in India, China, Uganda, Norway, as well as the U.S., are collecting information from both service providers and service recipients at public, non-profit, and private social service agencies through observations and in-depth interviews. Findings will be presented at international conferences, disseminated through publications, and will ultimately inform creation of best practices and dignity-based policies.
