Social and Economic Policy

Social and economic policy working briefs and papers

UNICEF's working papers and working briefs address crucial issues facing the world's children. They cover broad areas of policy work in UNICEF: child poverty, child-sensitive social protection, social budgeting and migration.

The working paper series represents the independent research and analysis of internal and external experts. The shorter briefs summarize up to date technical analysis and information on pressing economic and social policy issues.
