Social Protection: policies, programmes and evidence

Now in its fifth year, this popular course expands your knowledge and conceptual understanding of social protection approaches and provides vital insight into recent evidence and thinking on social protection. It equips you with the necessary skills to engage in critical debate on social protection and ultimately helps improve the effectiveness of social protection interventions in the context of development and poverty reduction. The course inspires critical reflection of policy and practice, grounding discussions in practical examples from across low- and middle-income countries. The focus of the course is on social assistance policies.

The course will enable participants to expand their knowledge base of approaches to social protection, develop an understanding of the challenges in designing and implementing social protection programmes, and critically assess current evidence of what works in social protection.
