Social policy is a dynamic process increasingly open to a wide range of players. This book provides a new approach to understanding and influencing social policy development, analysis, and social change. Focusing on conflicts and compromises over ideals, power and resources, 'Social Policy for Social Change' explores how the policy process works, as well as identifying the parties involved in making and implementing social policy. Rich with examples from a wide range of social policy areas and countries, the book highlights the dynamic links between policy, theory and practice and shows social policy to be a flexible and provisional force available to be harnessed by human service practitioners for positive social change.
