Social policy and paradigmatic references: the problem of research methodology in an age of globalization - The article addresses the subject of the unresolved challenges that social research faces, as a quantitative comparative analysis approach develops in the field of social policy. This trend of studies, which first started in the ‘90s, seems to be establishing itself in different ways as a new scientific paradigm. The article identifies the reasons for the development of this new trend of studies as a necessity of a heuristic nature, but also to respond to social policy needs for legitimization among modern scientific disciplines. The different fields of study and the historical authenticity of social research is considered the key to avoiding the risk of limiting social policy as a scientific discipline.
