Not Ready, Still Waiting

In The Price of Privilege ActionAid shows how powerful forces at the global level prevent countries from addressing inequalities. Blockages at the national level also stop laws and policies to reduce inequalities from being put in place. For example, social protection is recognised as a key redistributive policy with positive effects in reducing inequality, yet only two of the ten developing countries ActionAid studied have comprehensive coverage.

In this report, ActionAid looks at where governments are policy ready and where they are not, identifying where key policies, laws and supportive environmentswill allow governments to take the first step towardsgreater economic and gender equality.
