Published in association with the European Foundation of Social Quality.
In the recent past, the needs of people have too often been subordinated to the needs of the economy. This journal aims to refocus the political and sociological debate and provide a forum for comparative and interdisciplinary discussion of crucial issues affecting the quality of life in Europe and elsewhere. The remit of the journal is to explore practices and discourses on social quality; to debate perceptions and expectations of social quality in different societies and the ways these are affected by factors such as religion, class, age, gender, and nation; and to evaluate how economic policies or political decisions affect social equality.
This title is now known as the International Journal of Social Quality
