Social protection and care interventions for marginalized and vulnerable populations are indispensable if we are to ensure the quality of life and justice for all members of our societies; to do so, it is essential that any intervention takes full account of these people’s voices and experiences. At the same time, valuable insights can be gained by targeting institutions that can respond to changing local and transnational environments, resources, and actors in order to innovates their services and programmes for the wellbeing of marginalized and vulnerable people.
Our research attends to both participants’ individual, embodied experiences and the sociopolitical dimensions of governing, organizing and collective action, and in so doing it contributes to in-depth case studies of the politics of intervention into and transformation of the lives of marginalized and vulnerable people.
