Social Policy and Social Equality

The social policy and social equality research cluster was formed to connect scholars in the fields of social policy, social equality, social welfare and social stratification across Canada and internationally for scholarship excellence.

Social policies are “courses of action adopted by formal organizations. They prescribe, govern, and routinize the activities of these organizations. They govern their internal functioning, direct the activities of their members, and shape their relations with other organizations. They also specify how organizations should function in the wider social, economic, and political environment. They standardize decision making, enhance organizational efficiency, and facilitate goal attainment. Policies are necessitated by the increasing complexity and pace of organizational life. They are critically important if organizations are to attain their goals.” – James Midgley
