Understanding Global Social Policy is the first student-aimed textbook that comprehensively engages with this fast paced field of study, examining key theoretical and policy debates and issues. Written by an international team of leading social policy analysts, it examines how global social policies are constructed and explores how the globalizing strategies of state and non-state actors intersect with social policy concerns. This second edition contains systematically updated chapters that reflect major new developments—including the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals, the Social Protection Floor, and green global social policy—as well as new chapters on global poverty and inequality, social protection, criminal justice, and education.
