The Social Protection Policy in Malawi: Processes, Politics and Challenges.

Abstract

In Malawi, a process to develop a social protection policy framework was launched in December 2005, culminating in November 2006 with a draft policy which was circulated to stakeholders for feedback. This briefing argues that 1) the social protection policy process is being treated entirely as a technical rather than a political process; 2) leading government agencies lack the capacity to provide the necessary leadership, technical guidance and direction to the policy process; and 3) as a consequence, policy design has so far been dominated by donor agencies, particularly the UK's Department for International Development (DFID) and the World Bank.
