About the conference

The Fourth MENA Social Policy Network (University of Bath) Conference in Partnership with the American University in Cairo’s Centennial Celebration.

“Social Policy in the MENA Region: Policy Learning in the Era of Social Protection”

We are now in an era of major policy change in the MENA region: under the new paradigm of social protection, countries are undergoing major reforms in social policy provision ranging from the introduction of cash transfer programmes to re-adjustments in fiscal policy with major implications for both policy-making processes and citizen rights and welfare.
In response to this dynamic context, this conference seeks to engage with the following questions: How do we as researchers, policy-makers and practitioners make sense of the social protection agenda in the MENA region?
In what ways does it replace or reinforce pre-exiting social policy structures? More importantly how can social policy change be managed in this time of social transformation?
Can MENA countries learn from the policy experiences of other countries or regions? More to the point, how does policy learning happen in order to foster more effective, efficient and inclusive social protection policies?
