Changing Social Policy in the Context of Globalisation

Social_Policy_image2.jpg

Guest Editors: Peter Whiteford, Bingqin Li and Chu Songyan
Out in January 2015

The countries in Asia and the Pacific face a range of social challenges as the economy grows and becomes more open to the rest of the world. New social problems have emerged, such as a shifting in the geographic distribution of poverty, greater risks of economic instability, growing income inequality, the breaking down of traditional social support networks, and weaknesses in social protection and social services. All of these pose challenges to the sustainability of economic development, can lead to a questioning of globalisation and can even cause social instability. Throughout the region the challenges countries face are the same, in areas such as welfare, migration, family and care, gender disparities, healthcare, housing, education, the ageing society, labour markets and inequality, urbanisation and social protection.

This special issue of Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies aims to capture the social policy challenges and policy responses in this region (Click here for further information about this special issue).

Health Policy Challenges of a Region in Transition

Global_Health_Final-online.jpg

Guest Editors: Tikki Pang and Kelley Lee
Out in May 2015

The Asia-Pacific is a highly dynamic region where more than half of the world’s population lives. The region also bears the greatest burden of disease, both communicable and non-communicable, and is recognised as a major source of emerging diseases. It is also a very diverse region with countriesin various stages of development ranging from low-income countries such as Cambodia and Papua New Guinea, to middle-income giants like Indonesia and China, to economic powerhouses like Korea and Japan. Health needs, and health policy challenges to dealwith them, are consequently diverse and dynamic. Within this context of transition, there are unprecedented opportunities for innovative thinking, knowledge translation and collective action on heath policy.

The special issue aims to capture the health policy challenges of a region in transition (Click here for further information about this special issue).
