Abstract

This book provides political and economic perspectives on social policy and its evolution in countries of the Middle East and North Africa. Chapters on Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia analyze its origins in populist or modernizing state activities, its decline in the era of neoliberalism and prospects for its renewal in a democratizing and development context. This book uniquely provides historical and comparative data and a gender analysis of social policy that will be of relevance to specialists in social policy, development and the Middle East.
