Over the past few decades, there has been considerable dynamism in terms of discourse and practice in the social policy field. In the Introduction, we introduced six themes around which the discussions of the chapters in this volume have introduced new theoretical and analytical frameworks and the development of new social policies and programmes in non-Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. These were: a rights-based approach to social welfare; integration of social policy into other public policies; the newly assumed role of civil society organizations (CSOs) in delivering social services in transition economies; the emergence of supranational-level social policy; informal workers shaping the system of social policy programmes; and national ownership of social policy in the context of development cooperation.
