Shifts in the Welfare Mix: Their Impact on Work, Social Services, and Welfare Policies
Shifts in the welfare mix today often mean that the state, confronted with a difficult modernization of the economy, places more burdens on the shoulders of people and households. The contributors to this volume argue that these shifts could be used as opportunities to restructure the relationship between the state, economy and civil society. They examine the welfare mix in several West European countries, including Italy, France, Austria, and the UK, comparing and contrasting aspects of these welfare structures with the structures that exist in the East European nations of Yugoslavia, Poland, and Hungary.
