Phone Conference with Dr. Bob Deacon 


Email from Bob: 

Dear Usha,

Attached are some readings which i would like the students to read befor ethe

phone confertence on December 11th.

The first reading is chapter 1 of my book Global Social Policy and Governance, which is an overview of what i mean by global social policy. The second reading is the concluding chapter of the same book. The third reading is my paper on social policy and the global economic crisis delivered at an UNRISD conference recently. The last one is the last chapter from my recent edited text: World Regional Social Policy and Global Goverance which focusses on the role of regional organsations such as ASEAN, SAARC etc. In terms of the session I would appreciate it is the students could initially frame some questions which relate to one or other of these texts...
