Insecurity and Welfare Regimes in Asia, Africa and Latin America: Social Policy in Development Contextsby Ian Gough, Geof Wood, Armando Barrientos, Philippa Bevan
Pub. Date: 12/11/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Written by a team of internationally respected experts, this book explores the conditions under which social policy--defined as the public pursuit of secure welfare--operates in the poorer regions of the world. Making an important contribution by breaking away from the traditional focus on Europe and North America, it develops a new conceptual framework for understanding different types of welfare regimes in a range of countries of Asia, Latin America and Africa.
