Abstract

This chapter addresses contexts and challenges of building a regional governance of social policy. The apparent (re)turn worldwide to the possibilities of regional social policy is situated in the context of longer histories of regional integration and in more recent histories of neo-liberal global social experimentation and of struggles to forge more radical social models and modes of global governance. The chapter discusses the extent to which regional social policy has been a distinctive feature of regional integration initiatives and explores the different social policies they have adopted. It also discusses practical policy issues and imperatives arising from political projects to advance the ‘socialization of regionalism’ and the ‘regionalization of social policy’.
