Targeting social benefits : international perspectives & trends by Neil Gilbert( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade changing family life and increasing fiscal constraints on welfare expenditures have forced industrialized nations to reconsider how they approach social protection. Faced with fiscal and demographic changes, many countries have been struggling to -develop innovative policy responses. Some involve targeting benefits in order to shrink existing program commitments, to focus welfare expenditures on those most in need, and to give social welfare systems more flexibility in redirecting available resources to meet emerging demands. Targeting Social Benefits: International Perspectives and Trends provides a systematic assessment of the trend toward targeting in seven countries representing a range of industrialized welfare states-New Zealand, the Netherlands, Britain, Israel, the United States, Italy, and Sweden. The contributors to this volume examine the extent to which each country has adopted measures to focus social benefits on specific population groups and particularly social welfare program areas. A summary chapter surveys and categorizes the choices nations have made in targeting methods, culls the lessons learned for recent reforms, and explores the implications of these developments for the future of the welfare state. Specific methods for targeting benefits in different program areas are analyzed, which includes means-tests, income testing, diagnostic criteria, behavioral requirements and the use of socio-demo-graphic categories. This illuminating volume provides an in-depth understanding of alternative approaches to and consequences of policies designed to target social benefits. It will help scholars, professionals, and policymakers deepen their understanding of the alternative methods and consequences of recent policies designed to shift the allocation of social welfare benefits.

Social security in the global village by Christina Behrendt( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is growing recognition that globalization places major pressures on the development of social security schemes. Internationalization of the economy has important consequences for labor markets: employment is becoming less secure and inequality and social exclusion more pronounced in many countries. At the same time, there are some fundamental socio-demographic changes: new family structures, an aging population, and migration. Increased uncertainty and exclusion intensify the need for social security. Both the public and private sectors are redefining their roles, reshuffling responsibilities between states, markets, families, and individuals. Social Security in the Global Village investigates the new challenges for social security in an increasingly globalized world and analyzes strategies of adjustment. A group of internationally renowned experts in this field assess the variety of effects that globalization has had on national social security schemes. A common theme of a first set of chapters is the relationship between common pressures of globalization and the role of national institutional frameworks in shaping the impact of these pressures on social security. Countries are dealing in different ways with these challenges and follow diverse pathways of adjustment that quite often contradict widespread assumptions about the effects of globalization. A second set of chapters is devoted to challenges in selected policy areas: migration, labor markets, and social cohesion issues. Among the topical issues discussed are the social rights of migrants, the changing rights and obligations in unemployment insurance, lessons to be drawn for the promotion of employment, the relationship between family policy and employment policy for mothers, the management of social risks, and the protection of an adequate income in an active welfare state. Research can help to enlighten and inform the policy debate about the legitimacy of social security in the new, glob"--Provided by publisher
Financing social protection( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designing social protection systems that are effective and equitable, and fiscally, financially and economically efficient, has been a challenge for many countries as well as a source of substantive debate the world over. Formal social protection systems (through transfers in cash and in kind) redistribute between 5 per cent (in developing countries) and 35 per cent (in OECD countries) of their gross domestic product. One of the first volumes of its kind, this book addresses these challenges by offering a comprehensive overview of the many financing options available, while also providing a thorough analysis of their advantages and disadvantages and their financial and economic implications."--Jacket

Actuarial practice in social security( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The actuarial analysis of social protection schemes is a challenge that requires a delicate balancing act between the demographic, economic, financial and actuarial fields. Actuarial practice in social security addresses this challenge by providing a practical tool for actuaries to enhance and modernize social protection systems while still maintaining this important balance." "Actuarial practice in social security covers the valuation of pensions and presents a useful step-by-step account of the usual processes. It discusses the valuation of pensions, short-term cash benefits like sickness, maternity and unemployment insurance and examines the valuation of employment injury benefits as well. In addition, the book devotes special attention to what should be included in the actuarial report and presents a practical exercise to illustrate the important points discussed in the volume."--BOOK JACKET
