This annual summer institute, which was established in 1995, brings together senior policymakers and leading researchers to review recent research findings and to discuss major directions in social policy. It is organized by the School of Policy Studies of Queen's University with support from Human Resources and Social Development Canada, the Policy Research Initiative of the Government of Canada, and the Government of Ontario.

This year's theme, The New Poverty Agenda: Reshaping Policies in the 21st Century, explores the patterns of poverty today, highlighting changes from the past. It assesses policy responses, concentrating in particular on the problems facing working-age individuals and families and their children. The program explores the implications of the new patterns of poverty for key social programs. It also explores the potential contribution of mobilizing networks of public, private and community groups at the local level. Finally, it turns to the politics of poverty in the 21st century, asking whether poverty can be a priority.
