Social protection in Asia: Research findings and policy lessons

Published on 13 October 2010

This is a synthesis report from the Social Protection in Asia (SPA) policy-research and network-building programme, 2007-2010, funded by the Ford Foundation and IDRC. It presents research findings and draws out policy lessons from the 11 research projects, with three key elements: tracking the politics that leads governments to invest in social protection agendas; showing social protection to be not purely a state activity or a civil society activity, but drawing on the strengths of both; and presenting our conscious efforts to study ourselves as researchers within research to policy pathways.
