Description - Making a European Welfare State? by Peter Taylor-Gooby

This volume provides an up-to-date account of developments in Europe across a range of policy areas, from labour markets to disability and poverty to health care. Drawing on sociological, social policy, political science and economic perspectives, it situates debates about welfare convergence in a theoretical context. Each chapter is written by an expert in this rapidly changing field and is based on original research. Together, these experts demonstrate that EU commitment to an open market economic programme currently gives rise to tensions in accommodating different approaches to social welfare, and that moves to enlargement will compound the pressure.
