A significant aspect to emerge from the Chronic Poverty Research
Centre’s (CPRC) work on ‘Adverse Incorporation and Social Exclusion’ has
been the use of the term social contract as an approach for the
provision of pro-poor politics. Commissioned by the CPRC, this annotated
bibliography explores first the literature based on traditional accounts
of the social contract, and second those works from a development
studies perspective which employ the concept of a social contract. The
annotated bibliography focuses in particular on the following areas:
- general research on social contract theory;
- approaches and critiques of social contract theory;
- social contract theory from a strategy and policy perspective,
including citizenship, conflict, economic growth, welfare provision
