From social inclusion to solidarity: anti-poverty strategies under devolution

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Book abstract: Social justice and social policy in Scotland offers a critical engagement with the state of social policy in one of the devolved nations of the UK, a decade after the introduction of devolution. Promoting greater social justice has been held up as a key vision of successive Scottish administrations since devolution began. It is argued throughout this important book that the analysis of Scottish social policy must therefore be located in wider debates around social injustice as well as about how the devolution process affects the making, implementation and impact of social policy.
