Report on a range of strategies and both state and non-state roles in social protection. In insecure environments, support to non-formal mechanisms provided by civil society may be most effective, as despite their limited capacity they have greater access than formal providers. Broad-based welfare provision in post-conflict environments might avoid the social and political tensions that targeted assistance could create. It is important to be aware of the range of risks against which people require protection. Social protection in situations of conflict and transition relates both to the threat of violence and coercion, and to the consequences of these, including acute impoverishment and social exclusion.
