Social Protection for the Poor and Poorest - new book launched

3 Jun 2008

A seminar featuring presentations by Professor David Hulme, Rachel Slater, Dr Armando Barrientos and Dr Sam Hickey was held at ODI to launch a new CPRC book, Social Protection for the Poor and Poorest - Concepts, Policies and Politics.

You can read a summary of the seminar on the ODI website, which also links to an audio recording of it and downloads of the presentations.

About the book:

Social protection is fast becoming one of the most important themes in development policy. This collection examines the political processes shaping the formulation of social protection policies; compares the key conceptual frameworks available for analysing social protection; and provides a comparative discussion on the policies focused on the poor and the poorest. Drawing on key case studies from Africa, Latin America and Asia, the contributors outline solutions for the future of social protection in developing countries.
