Social Protection and Social Development in the Global South
The CSDA’s Professor Leila Patel, Associate Professor Sophie Plagerson and Dr Isaac Chinyoka, Post-Doctoral Fellow, have signed a book deal with Edward Elgar Publishers to produce a book that offers a comprehensive overview of contemporary social protection and social development in the Global South.
The handbook, which will contain chapters by 44 authors from around the globe, will situate social protection in a wider system of social welfare and development policies and programmes in low and middle-income countries. It is also one of the research outputs Professor Patel identified in her five-year plan for the recently renewed DST/NRF South African Research Chair in Welfare and Social Development. The book will be published in 2023.
