This edition presents an up-to-date and diverse review of the best in social policy scholarship over the past 12 months, from a group of internationally renowned authors.
As debates continue over the future of liberalism and the effects of globalised capitalism, this collection offers a comprehensive discussion of some of the most challenging issues facing social policy today, including an examination of Brexit, the Trump presidency, ‘post-truth’, migration, the lived experiences of food bank users, and the future of welfare benefits.
Published in association with the SPA, the volume will be valuable to academics and students within social policy, social welfare and related disciplines.
