image of Towards Integrated Social Policies in Arab Countries

The purpose of this report is to present an analysis of social policies and to identify approaches for enhancing their integration and effectiveness in Arab countries. The analysis is comparative and thus also covers countries from outside the region at different stages of development.



Models, realities, and conditions: Processes of social policy

The literature on policy processes is extensive, and much of it is specialized, focusing on particular issues or phases of the process. This chapter attempts first to characterize underlying models and then to construct a comprehensive model that combines important phases in the formulation and implementation of policy. Influential enabling and inhibiting conditions in each phase are identified and discussed. Finally, practices in the Arab countries and others covered by the analysis are placed within this framework.
