Globalization and Social Policy

Couverture
SAGE Publications, 21 août 2001 - 195 pages

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
