This paper explores the implications of globalization for social policy, and teases out those elements of globalization which have impinged most on it.
Then it explores the most important ways in which globalization has had an effect on social policy.
Seven issues are explored-the way in which globalization has highlighted and/or created new problems, its contribution to hollowing out the state, the way in which it has altered the balance of power between capital and labour, its contribution to stimulating an ideology of competiveness, its re-establishing of the importance of trade in discussions about social policy and, finally, the way in which it has helped to make the maintenance of social order a nexw priority.
The paper then explores the possibilities for supranational or regional social policy.
It examines the case for moving towards such a policy and the problems of so doing.
