In the second of the Policy Ontologies virtual event series, we continue to engage with what it means to research, think and write ontologically, as it relates to policy, institutional and state enactment.
The context to the event is policy and legislation processes and implementation, in relation to social policy and welfare.
Attendees across all career stages, including postgraduates, are welcomed. Spaces are limited. Registration is essential and a link to access the event online will be sent upon registration.
