11 analyses have been published under the Programme of Support to the Development of Researchers in the field of Social Sciences initiated by the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of Serbia, implemented in cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The Programme was aimed at secondary analyses of data obtained through the Survey of Income and Living Conditions – SILC. The programme also supported in-depth research through the Household Budget Survey and the Labour Force Survey, as well as the use of administrative data sources, aiming for a more comprehensive and holistic understanding of the subject and formulation of more efficient public policy.
The goal of the Programme was a deeper understanding of factors affecting poverty, social exclusion, material deprivation, risk of poverty, inequality, access to the labour market and other aspects important for the quality of life of individuals and families in the Republic of Serbia. The programme is aimed at increasing the capacities of researchers at the beginning of career to implement complementary/secondary research in areas that have not been explored, yet have a great significance for formulating efficient public policies in these segments.
The programme supported 19 researchers at the start of their career, and provided them with continued support of a total of seven mentors, as well as support by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia and the support of an independent statistician.
The successful implementation of the Programme owes immense gratitude to colleagues from the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia, both regarding professional advice and support, as well as for making available data from relevant surveys held by the Statistical Office.
The Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the United Nations Development Programme invite you to use the presented data in your further work, as well as to promote the findings and recommendations, hoping to thus stimulate a more efficient improvement of public policy and contribute to creating a more inclusive and equitable society.
