Social Policy After the Financial Crisis

A Progressive Response

New Horizons in Social Policy series

Ian Greener, Professor of Social Policy, University of Strathclyde, UK

Incorporating insights from political economy and behavioural psychology, this radical book provides an up-to-date account of the dilemmas facing social policy this decade: where did we go wrong, and what we can do about it?

‘By combining a theory of governance with behavioural insights, this book offers an original perspective on the context in which social policy is done, on the challenges that social policy faces, and on the options available’
– Citizens Basic Income Trust

‘Ian Greener has written a stimulating book, not only with a strong analytical focus, but also looking into how to move forward and reduce the inequalities of present days societies. The combination of, and extension of, work by especially Galbraith and Jessop is an important new contribution to social policy analysis.’
– Bent Greve, University of Roskilde, Denmark
