Topics include: (1) child welfare, and social policy trends and alternatives, before and after the economic reform; (2) the efficiency, cost, and underlying philosophy of the models of social policy in the United States, Germany, and Sweden; and (3) the components and implementation of economic reforms and the consequences of these reforms for child and human welfare. Part ii of the book profiles four case studies of efforts to reform social policies for children in central and eastern Europe. These studies include analyses of reforms in Hungary and Poland that have been underway for some time, and reforms in Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia that were introduced in 1991. a reference list of more than 200 items, an author index, and a subject index are provided.

From adjustment to development in Africa : conflict, controversy, convergence, consensus? ( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 296 libraries worldwide
"The economic crisis in sub-Saharan Africa in the 1980s and 1990s has generated fierce debate among analysts and policy-makers concerning its causes and appropriate ways out of it. The 'structural adjustment' programmes promoted by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have been at the centre of the debate. This volume brings together economists from these international financial institutions and some of the best known of their critics to show where the debate now-stands. A distinguished collection of African and international economists offers up-to-date analysis of the key policy issues in structural adjustment in Africa." "Among the policies addressed are those in the spheres of agriculture, trade, exchange rates, privatisation, investment, social sectors, external relations and democratisation. An introductory interpretive essay searches for areas of consensus and identifies those of continuing controversy. In no other place is there such an up-to-date, informed and comprehensive analysis of the debate over African recovery."--Jacket

Pro-poor macroeconomics : potential and limitations by Giovanni Andrea Cornia( Book )
16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
'Macroeconomic management is of great importance for the poor, who tends to pay more in times of crisis and gain less in times of booms. This volume rightly avoids providing a recipe for all countries, stressing instead the importance of country context in choosing macro policies.' - Francois Bourguignon, Senior Vice President for Development Economics and Chief Economist, World Bank 'At long last, a solid professional analysis of the interrelationships between macroeconomic policies and poverty, not only in theory but also in practice. UNRISD and Cornia merit the policy community's thanks and congratulations. One must pray that finance ministries and the IMF will now learn from it.' - Gerry Helleiner, Professor Emeritus in Economics, University of Toronto, Canada, and Chairman, International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP) 'Doing macroeconomics to help the poor is just about 180 degrees out of sync with current policy practice. This book will help turn the policy world in the right direction by describing how pro-poor macro policies should be designed. It merits careful study everywhere.' - Lance Taylor, Arnhold Professor of International Cooperation and Development, New School for Social Research, USA 'This wide-ranging volume explores both the potential as well as the limitations of current thinking around 'pro-poor macroeconomics'. It also underscores the crucial importance of grounding development, employment and poverty reduction policies in sustainable macroeconomic policy.' - Jose Antonio Ocampo, Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations 'The articles are firmly based in empirical evidence, which is refreshing...' - CAPSA Flash
Alternative development strategies for the post-2015 era by José Antonio Alonso( Book )
13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 160 libraries worldwide
"The global economic crisis of 2008-2009 exposed systemic failings at the core of economic policy making worldwide. The crisis came on top of several other crises, including skyrocketing and highly volatile world food and energy prices and climate change. This book argues that new policy approaches are needed to address such devastating global development challenges and to avoid the potentially catastrophic consequences to livelihoods worldwide that are likely to result from present approaches. The contributors to the book are independent development experts, brought together by the UN Commiittee for Development Policy, an advisory body of the Economic and Social Council, to identify a development strategy capable of promoting a broad-based economic recovery and at the same time guaranteeing social equity and environmental sustainability both within countries and internationally. This new development approach seeks to promote the reforms needed to improve global governance, providing a more equitable distribution of global public goods. The contributors offer a critical evaluation of past development experiences and report on their creative search for new and well-thought out answers for the future. They suggest that economic progress, fairer societies and environmental sustainability can be compatible objectives, but only when pursued simultaneously by all."--Page 4 of cover
