Relationships between social policy and human development are the subject of much research and theorizing. The literature in this area, however, examines these issues strictly within national contexts. What influence will international agendas such as NAFTA, the World Summit for Social Development, and Habitat II have? Transnational Social Policies specifically addresses the worldwide trend for national policies on human and social development to be increasingly influenced by agendas that are international, or "transnational," in nature. In doing so, the book examines the underlying international developmental, ethical, economic, and political issues shaping national policies in health, education, and employment in the developing world. This book's focus on the "transnational" character of the social policy debate makes it a truly unique and original contribution to the literature. It will appeal to the academic community, worldwide, in international development, public policy and administration, and social work; policymakers, researchers, and practitioners in the field of public (social) policy; and the international community of individuals and organizations working in international social development.

The current global financial crisis is transforming African prospects. How many 'developmental' rather than 'fragile' states will the continent have by 2020? The need for Africa to develop capacity for strategic thinking and leadership is clear. Covering the economics and politics of climate change and climate financing, transboundary water management, public service delivery and new modalities of delivering aid, the contributors consider national and transnational issues. Interrogating well-known issues, with a key focus on the capacity dimension, the editors put forth critical policy recommendations that seek to feed directly into policy.
