International Conference „Social Policies and the Welfare State in the Global South“

5. October 2017

An international group of historians and social scientists from Argentina, Chile, Australia, several European countries, the United States and Canada gathered on September 14th and 15th at Universität Bremen to analyze and discuss social policies and the welfare state in the Global South. A transnational and entangled perspective was constitutive to the majority of the presentations which shed new light on hitherto understudied aspects of social politics.

The conference gave proof of the importance of the transfer of knowledge (both from the South to the North and between countries of the Global South), was further able to show the heterogeneity of the actors involved and raised further methodological questions. The topics presented in four panels ranged from colonial social policies and their repercussions on Europe, the importance of International Organizations and processes of judicial codification as well as child labor laws in Latin America to the role of Chilean physicians in the establishment of social medicine programs in Mozambique. Keynote speakers professors Anne-Emanuelle Birn (University of Toronto) and Christoph Conrad (Université de Génève) focused on larger research projects in their presentations. While Birn delved back into the beginnings and further development of South-South-cooperation in health since the early 20th century, Conrad highlighted the possible future of social policies by assessing the global challenge of ageing.

The conference was organized by Delia González de Reufels and Teresa Huhle (Latin American History, Universität Bremen) in cooperation with the SOCIUM, the Research Center on Equality and Social Policy of this university. A publication will follow.
