Will Europe Work? by Martin Kohli

Book Description

In the post war years European integration was driven by nation states attempting to stimulate economic growth and social cohesion through European trade and cooperation. The results were prosperous, and unified Western European societies were based on full employment and redistributive welfare states. However, in today's Europe - a Europe subject to increasing international competition fuelled by both economic and cultural globalization - the European social model needs to be re-examined, yet its emphasis on cohesion remains crucial for the future of Europe as a unified polity. Investigating this issue in depth, this outstanding collection is divided into three key sections. These parts: * ask how recent developments have changed the old European model of employment and social protection, and outline a possible new European social model * focus on the questions of European identity and European borders, with special emphasis on cultural divisions such as ethnicity * concentrate on institutions such as citizenship and language, and reflect on sociology's ability to address European integration and the new European social order. Will Europe Work? brings together some of the leading names in European sociology to look at the construction of this new European social order through changing patterns of employment and Welfare and changing definitions of citizenship and identity.

Books By Author Martin Kohli

Inclusions and Exclusions in European Societies by Martin Kohli Inclusions and Exclusions in European Societies, Paperback (December 2007)

Addresses topics such as: to what extent classical theory provides useful ways of reframing European societies; which inequalities in work and welfare persist and in what ways they have been transformed in processes of European integration; and, how considerations of identities and the pressure of globalisation affect the inclusion and exclusion.

Time for Retirement by Martin Kohli Time for Retirement, Hardback (November 1991)

Addresses the "ageing of society" and the restructuring of the life course in terms of the changing relationship between work and retirement. Practically, it assesses the range of possible political answers to this process, with a comparative analysis of different national regimes.
