about this item

The 2007-2008 financial crisis marked a turning point for social policy. World leaders were forced to take a position: Should they entrench neoliberal policies in response to the crisis? Or, implement alternative measures to challenge economics as usual? This volume explores the response to the recession by international organizations and by nation states in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and North America. Contributors examine whether social policy followed a similar trajectory across countries and regions, or whether their diverse national experiences produced equally diverse solutions.
