Innocenti Working Papers Integrating Economic and Social Policy: Good practices from high achieving countries AUTHOR(S) Santosh Mehrotra Published: 2000 Innocenti Working Papers This paper examines the successes of ten 'high-achievers' - countries with social indicators far higher than might be expected given their national wealth. Their progress in such fields as education and health offers lessons for social policy elsewhere in the developing world. Based on UNICEF-supported studies in each country, the paper shows how, in the space of fifty years, these high-achievers have made advances in health and education that took nearly 200 years in the industrialized world. It pinpoints the policies that have contributed to this success - policies that could be replicated elsewhere. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 32 | Thematic area: Economic Development | Tags: comparative analysis, economic development, educational programmes, health programmes, social development policies, social indicators | Publisher: UNICEF IRC × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Santosh Mehrotra 2000 Integrating Economic and Social Policy: Good practices from high achieving countries. , pp. 32.
