9781781953945: Social Protection, Economic Growth and Social Change: Goals, Issues and Trajectories in China, India, Brazil and South Africa

This highly original and thought-provoking book examines the recent expansion of social protection in China, India, Brazil and South Africa - four countries experiencing rapid economic growth and social change.

The authors explore the developments in each country, analyze the impact of government cash transfers and discuss key future trends. The study reveals that social protection has complemented economic growth and supported development efforts and has been fundamental to promoting equitable and sustainable societies.

The book is essential reading for students of social policy, economics, development studies and public administration and will be an important resource for policymakers and administrators everywhere.
