Social security is an investment in human resources, which can provide overall security for a person within the family, workplace, and society. The right to social security is an important human right and an essential precondition for the realization of all human rights. It thus represents an essential transformation from needs-based charity to rights-based social justice.
This book examines the conceptual framework of social security, and focuses the reader’s attention on the missing dimensions of social security and protection for women in India. It explores experiences and lessons learned from various interventions on the ground, throwing particular light on the problems faced by specific vulnerable groups, such as female domestic workers, and sex workers. One of the first comprehensive resource books on social security, it will be of immense value to government departments, policymakers, development sector workers, as well as students and scholars of policy studies and gender studies.
