Produktbeschreibung
This
book provides the first comprehensive analyses of the challenges all European
welfare systems have been facing since 2007, combining in-depth country-based
studies and comparative chapters. It focuses on: 1) the economic and financial
crisis, 2) demographic change, and 3) the balance between avoiding risks and
opening up opportunities in social policy. The results show that European
welfare systems tend to face the same challenges in different ways and that
also their responses to those challenges differ considerably. Although the EU
also plays a part in shaping national welfare systems, it becomes evident that
European welfare systems are by no means converging: in terms of social policy,
national diversity within Europe is still a major factor that will shape future
developments in European welfare systems.
