Presenting "Global Social Policy at 25: Reflections and Prospects"

The Institute of Economics, Zagreb has published Global Social Policy at 25: Reflections and Prospects – a collection featuring scholars, activists, and those working in international organizations, who take stock of the field of global social policy 25 years after Bob Deacon’s seminal book on the topic appeared (Bob Deacon with Michelle Hulse and Paul Stubbs, Global Social Policy: International Organizations and the Future of Welfare, Sage, 1997). Bob Deacon made a vital contribution to the study of global, transnational, and regional social policy combining in-depth analyses of social rights, social regulation, and social redistribution with a deep and unwavering commitment to building institutions and programmes for global social justice.

Global Social Policy at 25: Reflections and Prospects was edited by our senior research fellow Paul Stubbs, PhD. It addresses the following questions and more: 
What were some of the strengths and weaknesses of the approach that Bob Deacon pioneered?
What are the key issues in global social policy today, both as a research field and in terms of struggles for social justice?
What themes are emerging and deserve greater attention in the future?

Featuring short interventions by: Jimi O. Adesina, Noemi Lendvai-Bainton, Rianne Mahon, Francine Mestrum, Isabel Ortiz, Shahra Razavi, Paul Stubbs, and Fiona Williams.
