Social Policy and the Quest for Inclusive Development: Research findings from Sub-Sahara Africa by Jimi O. Adésina

Social Policy and the Quest for Inclusive Development: Research findings from Sub-Sahara Africa by Jimi O. Adésina

Ratings: (0)|Views: 10 |Likes:
The paper examines the gaps that may exist between macroeconomic policies, social policies and social policy outcomes; and between the intended and unintended outcomes of social policies and social forces that impact on them. Variations in social development outcomes in the countries examined point to the importance of human agency in mitigating the worst impacts of a debilitating policy environment and a country’s ability to manoeuvre. Equally important is the configuration and orientation of social forces within the state and civil society that shape (initiate, contest, enact) social policies.
