Abstract

Building on the successes of 'Understanding Global Social Policy' (Yeates, ed. 2008) and its companion text, the 'Global Social Policy Reader' (Yeates and Holden, eds, 2009), the second edition of this leading textbook identifies and reviews the key issues, debates and priorities of action for social policy on a global scale. All first edition chapters have been systematically revised and updated to reflect major developments in this fast-paced area of policy. It includes new material on the Millennium Development Goals, the Social Protection Floor and the 'greening' of global social policy. This second edition includes new chapters on global poverty and inequality, social protection, criminal justice and education. Written by an international team of leading social policy researchers and analysts, Understanding Global Social Policy is the leading textbook in the field. Based on cutting-edge research, it provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of global social policymaking.
