“…Nevertheless, still conditional cash transfers and in-kind support benefit from political dominance.

Regardless of continuous empirical evidence defeating conditionality, the Brazilian government acted in anticipation of electoral gains and implemented conditional programs.…”

She points out that axiological, partisan and electoral ambiguities have been at the basis of the formation of consensuses for the development of CCT programs, conditioned their features and limited their scope in these two countries.…”

The studies examine responses and challenges of social policy systems in Mozambique, Uganda, Ghana, Zambia and South Africa (Gasior et al , 2021), Brazil and Mexico (Tomazini, 2021), Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia and Bulgaria (Broka and Toots, 2021), Ecuador (Ubasart-González and Minteguiaga, 2021), India (Nakray, 2021), Japan (Milly, 2021), Austria (Landini, 2021), Mexico (Martínez-Martínez et al , 2021), Greece (Burgi and Kyramargiou, 2021) and 15 post-Soviet states [1] (Panaro, 2021). Most papers refer to emerging welfare states, and some discuss social policies in more consolidated social policy systems, such as the cases of Austria, Greece and Japan, which are currently facing challenges that involve citizens from emerging welfare states.…”
