This is the first student-aimed textbook that comprehensively engages with this growing field of study, examining the key theoretical and policy debates and issues. Written by an international team of leading social policy analysts, it examines the impact of the prefix 'global' on the ways in which social policy as a field of study is constructed and explores how the globalising strategies of state and non-state actors intersect with social policy concerns. The book emphasises the role of supra-national organisations and international actors in social policy formation and highlights the 'bottom-up' and 'top-down' pressures. It provides an historical perspective on current developments and debates in global social policy and focuses on policy processes, content and impacts
