Summary: The authors point out that the social protection system in Argentina is at a crucial juncture. During the twentieth century, social protection was structured according to formal employment, through the instruments of social restraint, long-standing and relatively high coverage in the Latin American context. In contrast, social programs, defined as transfers of income tax for the relief of poverty in the general population are a relatively new form of social policy in Argentina, since they were developed primarily in response to the crisis of 2001-2002. In this context, this book seeks to contribute to the discussion on the design and implementation of a system of integrated and sustainable social protection. The book is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on core results of the project, Income Policy in Argentina by the World Bank and in two of its main studies: a survey of opinion on social programs, the Survey of Perceived Social Plans, (EPPS) and a process of consultation with relevant actors in the process of formulating and implementation of social policies. The second part of this book presents a series of papers written by experts in social policy and public opinion. This work was motivated by the results of the EPPS and the discussion generated from that project and its context.
