This title is a collection of essays that address the international changes in welfare policy. The book discusses patterns of governing associated with the notions of welfare, care, and education that emergeg during the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The issues examined are,... among others, the role of international donors and their emphasis on efficiency and lower social subsidies, international migration and its impact on welfare policy inclusions (and exclusions), and national policy change. While representing many different locations and traditions, contributors work within a variety of critical theoretical perspectives that critique our cultural ways of reasoning about the care and education of the child, the role and practice of the state, and the social and cultural construction of citizenship and nationhood.
