Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This innovative volume describes how an awareness of culture must be applied to the study and provision of welfare in Europe. It shows how the cultures underpinning social welfare systems are starting to be exposed and explored. The assumption that the values and beliefs which constitute welfare systems are universal and absolute has been overturned for two reasons. First, the post-war period has seen huge changes in traditional structures in Europe, such as class, race and gender, which have prompted people and systems to re-assess and assert their identity and role. Second, the move towards European union and the process of globalization have led to a growing awareness of different welfare systems; traditional distinctions, for example between the individual and the community, the public and private spheres, and the state and the market, have had to be re-evaluated.

Defining `culture' as the systems through which social orders are transmitted, experienced and explored, Welfare and Culture in Europe argues that welfare must start with the human individuals involved - the users, providers and policy makers themselves. It constitutes a major qualitative study of the ways in which welfare states reflect and reproduce patterns of social values. Several chapters draw on new biographical approaches to social policy research and analysis. It develops new directions for future policy research and presents alternative methodological bases for empirical work. At a time of crisis, change and anxiety in Europe, this book lays the foundation for an essential re-working of social policy.

Inhaltsangabe:

Comparing European welfare regimes at local, national and international levels, "Welfare and Culture in Europe" stresses the need for a concept of culture to be incorporated into welfare studies. The book analyzes the theoretical issues behind the emergence of the concept of culture in welfare during a time of crisis and change in Europe. Part 2 concerns administrative arrangements for welfare provision and how practitioners and users respond to them. Chapters highlight how different key social concepts - such as the nature of citizenship, the role of the family and the public/private dichotomy - shape the provision and use of welfare services. The final part develops possible directions for future policy research and presents alternative methodological bases for empirical work. It includes a major quantitative study of the ways in which welfare states reflect and reproduce patterns of social values, and a description of a new technique of biographical analysis of welfare users. "Welfare and Culture in Europe" proposes a redirection of social policy in welfare, moving away from the limitaions of the traditional, universal, bureaucratic politics of distribution to a "post-modern" participatory and innovative politics of recognition.
