Summary note:
"This volume examines the concept of global governance and how it emerges across issues and through time. It argues that global social policies have the power to contribute to reducing inequality in the South, and that they can also help create more integrated societies and cross-class coalitions between the poor and the middle class, as well as promoting universalism. How can policymakers move in the right direction? The authors combine a comparative analysis of the cases of Costa Rica, Mauritius, South Korea and Uruguay, and a detailed historical account of the Costa Rican experience, to address this issue. They highlight the role of policy architectures, which are the combination of instruments that dictate benefits available to people. This book will be of interest to advanced students and scholars of global governance and social policy"-- Provided by publisher.
