Book Description
This book describes the role of social policy in the context of globalization and rapidly changing economies and societies in Asia. It compares the social policy experience of a number of countries with a focus on East Asian (China, Indonesia, Vietnam), and South Asian (India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka) models and experiences.

Over the last decade, particularly since the Asian financial crisis, extension of social protection to people affected by crisis has been a major theme in national and international policy debates. In comparing the way social policy has evolved and studying its effects in various countries of Asia, the author provides a wide canvas and brings out the similarities and differences in the national experiences, while simultaneously providing explanations. His research brings together three separate streams of study?politics, sociology, and economics?to analyze the ground reality of Asian experiences.
