Kulikowski, MacDonald (eds.), Social security reform_1998

Strona główna » Wydawnictwa » Publikacje IBS PAN » Kulikowski, MacDonald (eds.), Social security reform_1998

This modest volume results from an international working meeting devoted to the analysis and design of the contents and the tasks of the research project, recently undertaken at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), devoted to the problems of social security reforms (SSR). The meeting, hosted by the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw in September 1997, was organized and run by the Systems Research Institute in close collaboration with IIASA.

The volume contains the full papers, or in some cases the summaries of the presentations made at the workshop, as well as the short texts of the interventions from the panel discussion. It can be easily seen from the contents that the variety of both the views and the national as well as scientific backgrounds of those participating constituted a strong point of the meeting and the exchange of opinions there. Although a true synthesis is perhaps beyond our present capacity, all possible efforts should be made to account for the existing theoretical knowledge and technical approaches, and to bring them together in an effective way.
