Social protection, social investment and inclusive development

Social protection, social investment and inclusive development

(p.251) Eleven Social protection, social investment and inclusive development
Reframing Global Social Policy

James Midgley

Policy Press

This chapter shows how we can avoid the unwanted polarisation between ‘investment’ and ‘protection’. While certain trends in postwar social policy may have encouraged that bifurcation from economic policy, this chapter shows how nearly all social policies in fact have a dual function, i.e. both productive and protective. The chapter reasserts the importance of social protection for societies seeking to revive strategies for equality in the new model of inclusive growth.

Keywords:   Inclusive Growth, Social Investment, Social protection, Social security, Redistribution, Inequality
