Global South - State of Social Protection & Challenges to Overcoming its Gender Gaps
This issue of Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) Informs presents a discussion on the state of social protection in the Global South and the new (and not so new) challenges to overcoming its gender gaps. Recognizing that in the countries of the Global South, the development of social protection systems has presented features of segmentation, insufficiency, exclusion and inequality, the articles gathered here review the situation in the various regions ( Asia, Pacific, Africa and Latin America), taking into consideration their nuances and differences. The authors discuss central problematic nodes such as the social protection situation of migrant populations, female rural workers and those engaged in platform jobs. They also review experiences of resistance against the increase in precariousness in various work spaces.
