ISLAMABAD, June 28(Dawn): Social scientists during a seminar on Wednesday stressed that research in social sciences could help in reducing poverty. The economics department of the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) held the one-day national seminar on 'trade and economic growth linkages' in collaboration with the social sciences and humanities section of the Higher Education Commission (HEC).
