about

This volume reviews Africa's past experiences of social policy, with an eye on the future. Contributions examine a range of social policy issues around healthcare, education, the labour market and social welfare, and highlight important conceptual and policy issues for rebuilding Africa. What stands out from these studies is how well the post-colonial nationalist leaders understood the positive links between social policy and economic development, and the significance of economic and social policy for nation building.
JÌMÍ ADÉSÍNÀ is Professor of Sociology at Rhodes University, South Africa. He received his education at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, and the University of Warwick, UK, where he obtained his PhD. His teaching and research interests include labour and development studies, social theory, methodology, and social policy.
