The Second Social Policy Report was the subject of a one day Expert Group Meeting in Amman on the 17th of January 2008. Organized by the Policy Frameworks and Instruments team of the Social Development Division, the EGM was an opportunity to get feedback and comments from a group of eminent regional and international experts. Discussion focused on the conceptual strengths of the report and on the appeal of the concept of Integrated Social Policy and of the report itself to policy makers in the region.While noting the challenges specific to the ESCWA region-political instability, pressures of macro-economic policies on national governments, a weak civil society-the meeting stressed the regulatory role of the state and the importance of social observatories and social and economic councils as independent monitoring bodies. The meeting also delved into specific suggestions for refining the approach and scope of the report and for identifying the necessary aspects for an enabling environment that could support an Integrated Social Policy approach.
