This title was first published in 2003. There is growing anxiety about the consequences of social and economic change for children in industrial countries. It is in this context that the Federation for International Studies in Social Security chose Children and Social Security as the theme of its conference held in June 2001. Leading academics came together to discuss issues such as international comparative studies of child poverty, financial benefit packages for children, aspects of social security provision for families with children. This volume is international in focus bringing together research from the US, Europe, South Africa, New Zealand it should be useful to researchers of social policy, economics, sociology and politics, as well as policy-makers and representatives of charities and international bodies.
