The informational basis of emerging social assistance in low and middle-income countries

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

The paper examines the informational basis of emerging social assistance institutions in low- and middle-income countries. The recent expansion of social assistance presents a challenge to researchers concerned with the development of welfare institutions. Diverse practices, the absence of data, and incipient conceptual frameworks are all significant obstacles to comparative analysis. The paper proposes an informational basis for social assistance in low and middle-income countries, capable of guiding the construction of a comparative database.
