Boston-Area Working Group

In 2013, TSI formed a Boston-area working group for students, scholars, and policy makers interested in Global Social Protections. The working group meets once a month to discuss new transnational scholarship, critique members' projects, and collaborate on conference papers and publications.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Peggy Levitt.
