Events

In a number of event formats, the SFB "Global Development Dynamics of Social Policy" presents and discusses new findings in social policy research. Usually these events are public.
The internal events of CRC 1342 are aimed to facilitate the exchange between the participating researchers and to promote their work on the research questions of their projects. Occasionally we report on the results of these internal events on the page "News".

Ndangwa Noyoo examines global social policy in the current global climate which is typified by, inter alia, increasing unilateralism, narrow nationalism and xenophobia. The former negative forces are not just confined within countries but are rapidly transcending nation-states and regions of the world, with far-reaching consequences. Global social policy is therefore juxtaposed against these cited trends whilst considering the progress that has been made in this area in past decades. Noyoo also advances his position which sees global social policy as a transformative force which needs to be harnessed and specifically directed by various role players in this era. Arguably, one major force that triggered the cited negative forces is the push factor of uncontrolled and illegal migrations of vulnerable groups from conflict and poverty-ridden parts of the world to the developed northern countries. Drawing on secondary literature and other empirical researches, Noyoo argues for a consolidation of global social policy, despite the deteriorating global situation, through the forging of stronger North – South networks. Also, he calls for a more robust global social policy as it could help to stem the tide of not only the cited migrations, but other social ills, at their source, by raising the quality of life of vulnerable groups in stressed countries. Nevertheless, the aforementioned needs to be predicated on a foundation of international solidarity which, at present, seems to be waning.
