This edited collection explores contemporary developments in social and welfare policy in Islamic countries from an indigenous and academic perspective, rather than through the hegemonic lens of Western social policy frameworks. The importance of this book lies in the diversity of insights and case studies drawn from a wide range of societies in the Islamic world, demonstrating how local services are responding to changing needs under the impact of globalisation, socio-religio-political developments, and often significant levels of civil conflict. This is the thrid in the new series 'Critical Studies in Socio-cultural Diversity'.
