Overview

Written in a clear and accessible style Globalization and Social Policy critically evaluates the relevance and implications of globalization in relation to both the academic study of social policy and social welfare provision.

The book examines the implications of globalization; analyses the extent to which social policies contribute to and shape globalizing stratergies; explores the degree to which globalization gives rise to systematic changes in the funding, regulation and provision of welfare; traces the changing nature of social policy as a consequence of globalization; and examines how 'globalization' undermines national autonomy in social policy

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book exhibits the characteristics of all good social policy texts. It is fired by a commitment to welfare. It is informed by extensive multidisciplinary scholarship. It debunks fashionable myths. Nicola Yeates argues convincingly that while globalization in its many manifestations and dimensions (economic, cultural and political) has to be built into the analytical framework used by social policy scholars, globalizing pressures are not immutable nor guaranteed success in overriding local and national social and political forces… . Essential reading on all social policy courses'.

Bob Deacon, Professor of Social Policy, University of Sheffield/STAKES, Finland

"Many social scientists have not yet woken up to the fact that globalization

has transformed the nature of social policy. The severity and the causes of

many problems are harder to pin down; research and teaching programmes have to be re-cast. This book offers a penetrating assessment of the changes that have to be made'.

Peter Townsend, Professor of International Social Policy, LSE
