About this item

Social policy, political science, economics, and other researchers from Europe, North America, Australia, and Korea present 14 essays that explore how global social policy is being reframed by policy actors and institutions shaping global social governance for the remaking of economy and society after neoliberalism, a policy shift from the welfare state towards the social investment welfare state that incorporates thinking about inclusive or shared prosperity. They consider the current policy logic of integrating and unifying ideas about inclusive growth and social investment and the future social, economic, and environmental opportunities and challenges, as international organizations and policy communities around the world create a new policy consensus based on sustainable development and human rights. In the first section, they address theoretical frameworks related to the emerging global social policy frameworks for inclusive growth and social investment, the new integration of social with economic policy from the developing economies perspective, and the challenges of inclusive growth for the developmental welfare state. The second part focuses on policy applications: how inclusive growth has been defined and measured in developing and advanced economies; an employment strategy of inclusive growth and the role of nonstandard forms of employment; how active labor market policies can be redesigned to promote inclusive growth at the intersection of employment and benefits to encourage and reward participation in productive processes; the contribution of vocational education and training and lifelong learning to promote inclusive growth and social investments; generational, life course perspectives on social investments and inclusive growth; inclusive growth for health equity; how social protection programs function as investments and contribute to inclusive development investment; governance for inclusive growth and social investment; and the question of limits and prosperity, with discussion of the book Limits to Growth, first published in 1972.
