There’s no question that globalization and the rise of neoliberal thinking have had a major effect on social policy, from the theoretical to the practical level. But what’s less clear is what that effect has been, which this book sets out to address. Fusing the applied, empirical concerns of traditional social policy with the broader theoretical perspectives found in political economy and macrosociology, it analyzes the effects of globalization and builds an integrated agenda for future research and practice in the field.

Review Quotes
Karen Anderson, Associate Professor of Social Policy, University of Southampton

“This excellent volume presents a multidisciplinary assessment of how shifts in global markets influence the development of social policy, offering analytically and empirically rich contributions that unravel the relationship between globalization and different sectors of the welfare state.”
