By International Labor Office
worldsocialsecurityreport2010

This is the first in a new series of biennial reports that aim to map social security coverage globally, presenting various methods and approaches for assessing coverage and identifying gaps. Backed by comparative statistical data, this first report takes a comprehensive look at how countries are investing in social security, how they are financing it, and how effective their approaches are.


The report examines the ways selected international organizations (the EU, OECD, and ADB) monitor social protection and the correlation of social security coverage and the ILO Decent Work Indicators. It features a review of national approaches to social security, with a focus on countries’ responses to the economic crisis of 2008—and the lessons to be learned, especially concerning the short- and long-term management of pension schemes., reviewing a previous edition or volume
