The International Social Security Association (ISSA) has always had as one of its missions the exchange of information between member organizations in order to assist them to learn about common challenges and efforts taken to meet them. The International Social Security Review has long been one of the vehicles by which such information has been distributed. It has provided a forum where policy-makers can articulate and explain in a thoughtful fashion their initiatives and their concerns and where academics can raise new issues and throw a critical light upon efforts to meet existing and perceived needs that have already been undertaken. By definition, the content of the Review provides opportunities for comparison and, on many occasions, specific contributions have a comparative component. Because it is directed to a practitioner audience as much as an academic one, contributors feel obliged to make recommendations and, indeed, are encouraged to do so.Moreover, academics working in the area of policy analysis recognize that they are not merely commentators; they are also expected to use their analysis to make suggestions about what needs to be changed and about what more, or what instead, needs to be done.
