|Description:||8th Annual Academic Conference: "Social Policy in a Globalizing World: Developing a North-South Dialogue"|
|Location:||University of Florence, Florence, Italy|
|Subject:||The Theme: The relationship between global(ization) processes and welfare state development has generated much debate in recent years. However, those concerned with the impact of globalization upon social policy in developing countries and those dealing with industrialized countries to a large extent occupy two parallel, but still separate literatures. Attempts at bridging the gap have not been very successful so far, but there are promising signs of a more positive scenario, especially considering recent developments in the global discourse on social rights.
