The Paradigm of International Social Development : Ideologies, Development Systems and Policy Approaches Hardback
by Murli Desai
Part of the Routledge Studies in Development and Society series
This book takes a historical approach to analyse ideologies, policy approaches and development systems that have constructed the paradigm of international social development.
It aims to review the social construction of "development" by tracing the historical dynamics of the modern ideologies and political economy of industrialization, colonization, the Cold War, and globalisation; to examine the process of reconstruction of development as "social development" based on alternate ideologies and alternate policy approaches and review the roles played by the development systems; and to trace the history of social policy approaches from welfare to rights-based, universal, comprehensive and preventative social policies for social development, and identify the roles played by non-government organizations and the social work profession.
