Commonwealth Secretariat Discussion Paper #13, April 2012
The definition of social protection and what it might encompass is currently a contested space for ‘framing’ the debate and practice. Who is making the decisions about its nature and the responses? Who controls what ‘social protection’ means?
This discussion paper situates the current debates, analyses practices, and puts forward the Commonwealth Secretariat’s approach to social protection which promotes models of both transformative and ‘anticipatory’ social protection.
