Social Protection Lessons from SADC for the Global South
The region of southern Africa has historically been characterized by racial discrimination, marginalization of the majority of the African population, exclusion from participation in productive activities, segregation of income-generating opportunities and a high rate of HIV/AIDS infection. In particular, the countries of Southern Africa face grave problems of growth and development. Economic policies followed by many countries of the subregion post-independence have failed to transform this legacy.
