Caveats and Disclaimers
My work here is on-going. Attempting to define a organizational framework for the complex, ever-expanding universe of social policy requires considerable time and effort. I contribute to this repository in the hours when I am not otherwise engaged. I consider no page to be complete. To the contrary, most discussions are in early drafting phases—not well cross-linked on the site front end and riddled with typos. This will be a life-long project for me.
As I work on defining terms, I do so with respect to their usage relative to the practice of social development—I don’t worry to much about how a term is used in other disciplines.
