The Social Contract in Hard Times
How do economic crises affect the social contract between state and society?

This report assesses the effect of hard times on the political, economic, and institutional facets of the social contract.

The issues are addressed from a range of perspectives, including measures for effective redistribution through social welfare programmes in Europe, loyalty benefits in the Middle East, and the need for a global social contract to encompass Africa and the developing world.
