Leading a Transformation? New Trends in Social Policy from the Global South—An UNRISD Global Research Workshop
Realizing the ambitious transformative vision of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires an equally transformative means of implementation. Innovative social policies that promote social and economic inclusion can provide such a means, and some of the most interesting developments in these areas today are coming out of the Global South. But innovative social policies do not always lead to transformation. Only when political structures and institutions are aligned with the goals of inclusive social policy can these reforms be sustainable in the long term.
UNRISD Event Briefs highlight knowledge that can improve the quality of development debates, policy and practice. They offer readers a concise overview and key highlights of the discussions at selected UNRISD project workshops, conferences and international meetings. Through these briefs, UNRISD provides information about its events and the discussions taking place, which may not otherwise be available to interested audiences.
