Jan 01, 2008

Download The universal right to social security is actually a fundamental aspect of the view of the world that emerged from World War II. Together with full employment, particularly for male breadwinners, social security is intended to give everyone socio-economic security and access to comprehensive medical care. Since then the world has undergone profound change, and the context in which the right to social security is to be implemented is very different.
