Professor James Midgley has led the editorial team for a groundbreaking book that provides a coherent case to enhance collaboration between social policy and development. The Handbook of Social Policy and Development, edited by James Midgley, Rebecca Surender and Laura Alfers, discusses a myriad of ways in which this can be done, exploring both academic and practical activities of a number of wide-ranging chapters. As the conventional distinction between ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries becomes increasingly blurred, the Handbook explores how collaboration between social policy and development is needed to meet global social needs.
