Centre for Social Protection Institute of Development Studies, 2012; Download publication

This report includes information on a Transformative Social Protection framework. Introducing an emphasis on social justice and equity, the framework focuses on the root causes of poverty and vulnerability.

In this report, the Centre defines social protection as including all initiatives, both formal and informal, that provide:

  • Social assistance to extremely poor individuals and households
  • Social services to groups who need special care or who would otherwise be denied access to basic services
  • Social insurance to protect people against the risks and consequences of livelihood shocks
  • Social equity to protect people against social risks such as discrimination or abuse
