Published in association with the Social Policy Association, Social Policy Review is an annual volume that draws together international scholarship at the forefront of research on social policy. This edition looks at the effects of financialization on services and the provision of care, policies aimed at addressing deficiencies in housing and labor markets, and ways that the study of social policy may need to develop to respond to changing material concerns. A themed section, meanwhile, considers the place of comparative welfare modeling in the context of a quarter-century of change.
