CSP Conference April 2011: Social Protection for Social Justice

The Centre for Social Protection hosted a conference titled ‘Social Protection for Social Justice’ at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) in Brighton, 13-15 April 2011. Financial support was provided by Concern Worldwide and UNICEF, as well as IDS.

The conference aimed to explore future directions for social protection that go beyond safety nets and risk management, to address broader concerns with redistributive equity and social injustice. 55 papers were presented. Side events included the launch of two books – ‘Social Protection for Africa’s Children’ and ‘Migration and Social Protection’ – and the 2010 European Report on Development: ‘Social Protection for Inclusive Development’

The UK launch of the European Report on Development 2010, ‘Social Protection for Inclusive Development‘, took place at the conference.
