The Inequality Gap: A Social Protection Floor for an Inclusive Crisis Recovery

Isabel Oritz. April 25, 2013. CIGI Auditorium, Waterloo, Ontario. CIGI Signature Lecture Series.

At the beginning of the 21st century, rising inequalities led to the proposal of a social protection floor for the global economy, now fully endorsed by the United Nations and member countries. A social protection floor is necessary in any society because the benefits of growth do not automatically reach all; further, the need for adequate social protection systems has increased given the impacts of the global crisis. This presentation offered a review of selected policy issues, such as the importance of expanding social protection coverage, the debates on unconditional/conditional cash transfers and universal/targeted policies, and discuss affordability of a social protection floor as well as the high costs of keeping people excluded.

Toward a Global Social Protection Floor – Conference Videos

The Global Social Governance Field Group at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, Ontario, presented “Toward a Global Social Protection Floor,” a Symposium held April 24-26, 2013. The Global Social Protection Floor is an ambitious initiative that aims to secure access across the globe to health care and income security for children, the elderly and persons with disabilities, the unemployed and working poor. It also seeks to establish a new global governance architecture that would enable the social rights-oriented international organizations to exercise ongoing influence on the policies of the international financial institutions, notably the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Inside the Issues 2.19 – International Migration and Development

30:49. David Welch and Jonathan Crush. February 22, 2012, in the CIGI studio, Waterloo, Ontario.

While international migration and development are oft-discussed topics in global governance, the nexus between the two receives far less attention. Not so for Jonathan Crush, the newly-appointed CIGI Chair in Global Migration and Development, our guest this week on Inside the Issues. He argues against the notion of economic development “stopping migration,” saying that the relationship between flows of wealth and people are not so straight-forward in today’s complex global arena.
