The Handbook of Social Policy and Development makes a groundbreaking, coherent case for enhancing collaboration between social policy and development. With wide ranging chapters, it discusses a myriad of ways in which this can be done, exploring both academic and practical activities. As the conventional distinction between ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries becomes increasingly blurred, this Handbook explores how collaboration between social policy and development is needed to meet global social needs.
With contributions from leading experts in both social policy and development studies, this Handbook analyses the complexities of integrating social policy and development studies. Examining a diverse and comprehensive range of countries and case studies that highlight ways to improve this integration, contributors deal with critical debates, covering a wide range of services, programmes, providers and policy sectors.
The Handbook of Social Policy and Development is an invaluable introduction to the subject for students of social policy and development studies. Its comprehensive approach also makes it a valuable reference for researchers and specialists in the field.
