Our work examines innovative social policy approaches and programmes being implemented in countries across the Global South. These approaches challenge dominant paradigms in the field, offering valuable theoretical insights. By analysing the outcomes of these policies, we aim to develop recommendations for socially innovative solutions tailored to the specific contexts of the Global South.
