Social Policy and the Transformative Potential of the SDGs

Social Policy and the Transformative Potential of the SDGs

PUBLICATION: Special issue of the Journal of International and Comparative Social Policy from the CROP panels at the World Social Science Forum in Durban, September 2015.

July 2016

During the World Social Science Forum in Durban, September 2015, CROP organised two scientific panels; one on "Global Justice and Poverty in the Transformation of Millennium Development Goals into Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)" and one on “Poverty, Social justice and Policy in a Regional Comparative Perspective”.

The presentations made by these panels have been revised for this special issue into critical commentaries and opinion pieces as early responses to the SDG developments, in order to provoke further debate among social policy and social development scholars regarding the adequacy and effectiveness of the SDGs as a framework for increasing global social justice. The special issue was edited by Prof. Bob Deacon, Sheffield University, UK
