Christopher Deeming and Paul Smyth together with internationally renowned contributors propose that the merging of the ‘social investment’ and ‘inclusive growth and development’ agendas is forging an unprecedented global social policy framework. The book shows how these key ideas together with the environmental imperative of ‘sustainability’ are shaping a new global development agenda.

This framework opens the way to a truly global social policy discipline making it essential reading for those working in social and public policy, politics, economics and development as well geographical and environmental sciences. In the spirit of the UN’s Sustainability Goals, the book will assist all those seeking to forge a new policy consensus for the 21st century based on Social Investment for Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Development.

Contributors include Giuliano Bonoli, Marius Busemeyer, Sarah Cook, Guillem López-Casasnovas, Anton Hemerijck, Stephan Klasen, Huck-ju Kwon, Tim Jackson, Jane Jenson, Jon Kvist, James Midgley, and Günther Schmid.
Christopher Deeming is a Senior Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Strathclyde. Research interests include inclusive growth and social investment inspired social policy, and comparative social policy.

Paul Smyth is Honorary Professorial Fellow in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne, Australia. His numerous writings on Australian social policy include three editions of Australian Social Policy Understanding for Action (2014) and Inclusive Growth in Australia (2013).
