March 01, 2001Regional Social Protection in an Insecure Era: A South-South Exchange on Alternative Social Policies Responses to Globalization
This workshop brought senior policy makers, policy researchers, and representatives from selected non-governmental organizations active in social policy together to establish a platform for a South-South exchange of innovations, experiences and expertise in the area of social protection policies within the context of globalization. Discussion between participants opened up avenues of further collaborative policy research, technical cooperation and exchange of experiences among participant organizations and the larger social policy community. The workshop’s long term objective was to formulate an inter-regional program in this field.
This workshop was organized in collaboration with and sponsored by the Special Unit for Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries, part of the United Nations Development Programme (SU/TCDC-UNDP).
