Transformative Law and Public Policy


Add your own review!

Overview

This book explores the convergence of law and public policy. Drawing on case studies from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, it examines how judicial and political institutions are closely linked to the socio-economic concerns of the citizens. The essays argue for the utilization of both legislative and executive, private and public spheres of society as vehicles for transformative social change and to safeguard against violations of socio-economic rights. The volume will be of great interest to both public and private stakeholders, as well as professionals, including NGOs and think tanks, working in the areas of law, government, and public policy. It will also be immensely useful to academics and researchers of constitutionalism, policymaking and policy integration, social justice and minority rights.

`Ranging from the local to the global, the contributions collected in this remarkable volume make a persuasive case for the alignment of public policy and law demonstrating that the notions of justice underpinning them are not revealed but constructed.' -Armando Barrientos, Professor Emeritus of Poverty and Social Justice, Global Development Institute, University of Manchester, U.K. `Grounded in empirical research and rooted in theories of social justice, Transformative Law and Public Policy explores the shifting intersections between law and public policy in the developing world. Its detailed case studies and reflective essays provide an engaging view of how those two realms can come together to address poverty and build more inclusive societies.' -Joan Dassin, Professor, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University `The weaving together of different public policy areas and the application of the law offers a deeper understanding of the realities on the ground that resonates with many countries in the Global South. The book is a great resource not only for academia but public policy architects and implementers as well.' -Grace Bantebya-Kyomuhendo, Professor, Makerere University `Critically important book to social scientists and legal scholars interested in current debates about international public policy and law. It contains up to date information and discerning commentaries that will be of value to scholars everywhere. It deserves to be widely read.' -James Midgley, Professor of the Graduate School, University of California, Berkeley
