This chapter focuses on the measures that have emerged as components of the social-security systems of developed countries. It considers the lessons that developing countries may or may not be able to draw from the experience of developed countries in devising social-security systems, concentrating on case studies of policies aimed at the support of children. The chapter notes that this serves to illustrate a number of key issues. It focuses on the situation in developed countries and considers how far the methods and approaches adopted in the analysis of policy in those countries do indeed suggest wider lessons of relevance to developing countries.

Keywords:   social-security systems, developed countries, lessons, developing countries, case studies, support of children
