Social Provision in Low-Income Countries


Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at community-oriented types of social services provision in the south-eastern portion of Tanzania. It begins with arguments regarding the employment of state policies that were supported by international institutions and development agencies. Central to such a discussion is the basis and manner the task of social provision should be shared by the government and the local community without compromising individual freedom and without discarding the opinions of those in marginalised groups. Through extensive observations and reviews, the chapter is able to conclude regarding the effect of decentralisation, democratisation and private ownership in terms of the availability of basic necessities in the remote areas.

Keywords:   social services provision, Tanzania, state policies, international relations, marginalised groups
