Abstract [en]

The welfare state in Europe has been reformed gradually over the past two decades, with the intensification of the economic and monetary union and the addition of fifteen new members of the EU. This book explores the pressures that have been placed on the welfare state through a variety of insightful and thought-provoking contributions.As the standard of living has increased, aspirations and financial constraints have required major rethinking. European countries have considerable variety in how they approach the welfare system with differing weights placed on income, employment and the ability to participate in society. Choices over welfare lie at the heart of the democratic system; this book explores the tensions this has produced and the innovative responses in policy content and institutions.
