Social Protection for the Poor and Poorest in Developing Countries: Reflections on a Quiet Revolution
AbstractThe theory and practice of social protection in developing countries has advanced at a rapid pace over the last decade or so.

It examines the factors determining the future course of social protection and identifies urgent research needs.
