Conference Description:

The Institute of Development Research and Development Policy (IEE) at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany, together with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is convening the International Conference on 'Reforming Social Protection Systems in Developing Countries'. The event will take place from 20 - 21 October 2011 in Bochum, Germany.

The Bochum Conference will provide an international platform for academics, policy-makers, and experts from public and private bodies. It aims at analyzing ongoing reforms of social protection systems in developing countries from both a political economy and legal point of view. The two overarching questions are:

- What are major determinants explaining reform successes and reform failures?
- What are successful strategies in building political and public support for these reforms?
