Research Working Group on the Future of Welfare States

Welfare states and welfare state politics are undergoing significant change. This research group focuses on: changing social needs and preferences – including changing patterns of inequality – that might produce pressures for welfare state recalibration; changing patterns of social solidarity and support for redistribution or other welfare state “attitudes”, the new electoral and party politics of the welfare state; public policy and governance analyses of welfare states. We meet each second and third trimester.

If you would like to join the Research Working Group on the Future of Welfare States to contribute as a presenter or as a participant in the discussions, please sign up for our group using this link. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
