Cite Embed

Naila Kabeer argues that while social policy as an explicit aspect of policy discourse has relatively recent origins within the international development agenda, concerns with the social have featured from its very early days seeking to challenge the conflation between growth and development.

Naila Kabeer is Professor of Gender and Development at the Department of Gender Studies and Department of International Development.  Her research interests include gender, poverty, social exclusion, labour markets and livelihoods, social protection and citizenship and much of her research is focused on South and South East Asia.
