LIVES Working Papers: Description

The LIVES Working Papers (ISSN: 2296-1658) is a new social science paper series, published by the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Life Course Research LIVES. It is designed to advance scholarship and debate in the growing field of life course research. It will explore the effects of vulnerability on health, family and work life, and its implications for social policy, from interdisciplinary social science perspectives, whilst emphasizing a solid grounding in sociological, psychological, demographic and economic theory and methodology.

The series encompasses the diversity of vulnerability and its spill-over effects on social and personal relationships, institutions, and minority groups, and their need to be understood in the context of different societies and life domains. Interdisciplinary in scope, the paper series covers a wide range of theoretical, methodological and substantive issues in life course research and related fields, ranging from methodological or research reports, literature reviews, and data descriptions, to papers presented at conferences or potential future journal articles. Working Papers receive only limited review.
