COST Action IS1102 SO.S. COHESION - Social services, welfare state and places


The Action had four main Tasks

Task 1 - WG1 Comparison of regulatory frameworks and organisational trajectories in social services months 1-12
Task 2 - WG2 Analysis of the effects of changes in care services months 10-36
Task 3 - WG3 Comparative assessment of practices, oriented to providing policy inputs months 34-48
Task 4 - WG4 Dissemination and capacity building months 1-48

The first three Tasks were roughly sequential (see Chart 1), whereas the fourth was transversal. The first three Tasks were carried out by three, corresponding, Working Groups, each coordinated by a WG Leader and Co-leaders. Efforts were made to ensure the presence of at least one country per welfare regime – in each Working Group. The fourth Task was carried out by all participants, throughout the duration of the Action, and was coordinated by a Dissemination Board.
