Abstract: This special issue combines contributions to a series of collaborative workshops and conference symposia of the UK Social Policy Association, the UK Development Studies Association and the Indian Social Policy Association held at the University of Bath (April 26th -27th 2013), the University of Birmingham (November 16th 2013), O.P. Jindal Global University (March 24th -25th 2014) and the University of Sheffield (July 14th -16th 2014) asking: What is the Role of Social Policies in Meeting Emerging Global Policy Challenges and What Can Social Policy and International Development Studies Learn from Each Other? The main starting point for these different activities was the recognition that researchers and practitioners from social policy and international development studies increasingly face similar emerging global policy challenges at conceptual, methodological, technical and practitioner levels. In a world that is rapidly changing, increasingly connected and uncertain, the need and opportunity for fruitful intellectual collaboration between the two academic fields of inquiry is greater than ever. This Special Issue intends to take this initiative forward by covering different perspectives and approaches that examine the intellectual distinction between social policy and international development studies and look to develop a shared theoretical framework for global applied policy analysis. More specifically, it aims to explore the role of productivist and protective welfare activities and provide new insights into the particularities of global (informal) welfare regimes and the cross-cultural complexities of policy-making in the post-2008 financial crisis era.
