  1. Social Policy, Employment and Family Change in Comparative Perspective

    Social Policy, Employment and Family Change in Comparative Perspective

    Edited by Jonathan Bradshaw, Aksel Hatland
    This book is a comparative study of family change, parental employment and social policy in the five Nordic countries, the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. In all these countries family forms have been profoundly affected by lower fertility rates, lower marriage rates, increased cohabitation, higher risks of relationship breakdown and episodes of lone parenthood. These changes have also been linked to an increase in the proportion of mothers participating in the labour market. Learn More

  3. Ageing and Pension Reform Around the World

    Ageing and Pension Reform Around the World

    Edited by Giuliano Bonoli, Toshimitsu Shinkawa
    This book comprehensively documents developments in pension policy in eleven advanced industrial countries in Western Europe, East Asia and North America. In order to explore what population ageing means for the sustainability of pension systems, the authors present a detailed review of pension policy making over the past two decades and provide up-to-date analysis of current pension legislation. They examine the factors that can facilitate or impede the adaptation of pension systems and the features that shape and determine reforms. They also highlight the fact that although the path of reform taken by each country is somewhat different, the processes at work are often very similar. Learn More

  4. The Politics of Globalisation and Polarisation

    The Politics of Globalisation and Polarisation

    Maurice Mullard
    This book deals with the nature of contemporary globalisation. Maurice Mullard aims to show that globalisation is not an inescapable, unstoppable process somehow beyond human control, rather that it represents, and is being shaped by, a series of deliberate policy choices and policy decisions. The emphasis of this fascinating work is on how these policy choices are creating new forms of economic inequalities and also political elites that distort the democratic process. Learn More

    The Dynamics of Social Exclusion in Europe

    Edited by Eleni Apospori, Jane Millar
    Issues of poverty and social exclusion are high on the European policy agenda. The Dynamics of Social Exclusion in Europe reports findings from a study funded by the European Commission, using data from the European Community Household Panel, with a multi-dimensional approach to international comparisons of poverty and social exclusion. The research, building upon that of the preceding book – Poverty and Social Exclusion in Europe – compares four groups who are anticipated to be at particular risk of poverty and social exclusion; young adults, lone parents, the sick or disabled, and those retired from employment.

  12. THE WELFARE STATE IN BRITAIN

    THE WELFARE STATE IN BRITAIN

    Michael Hill
    The Welfare State in Britain presents a history of British social policy from the election of Clement Attlee to the fall of Margaret Thatcher. Michael Hill focuses upon the political processes which influenced the key reforms of the late 1940s, and the ways in which those reforms have subsequently been consolidated and undermined. He critically examines some of the theories drawn from political science which have been used to explain the growth of the welfare state in Britain. The so called ‘crisis of the welfare state’ that has dominated recent rhetoric is shown to have its origins in the very period when the welfare state was believed to have been created. Despite its importance for electoral politics, social policy is shown to have often been subordinate to economic and foreign policy. Learn More
