About this book

This collection offers a critical analytical perspective and fresh empirical data on recent market-orientated social policy reforms in Latin America. The six case studies presented examine labour, education, health and general social development programmes. A particular focus is placed on the ways in which market-enhancing reforms such as demand-based provision, social policy targeting and privatization respond to issues of equity, coverage and the quality of provision.

Reviews

'...the empirical matter presented in all the essays is of undeniable value and richness, which makes the book particularly appealing to anybody interested in the main characteristics and pending issues of key social policies in the aforementioned countries over the last decades. It is also very well organised and would be useful for postgraduate students, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners.' - Romina Miorelli, Political Studies Review

'This volume is an excellent piece of research that represents one of the most robust and serious criticisms of the neoliberal perspective of public policy.' - Natalia Ajenjo - Environment and Planning
