Europe's New State of Welfare: Unemployment, Employment Policies and Citizenship

Europe's New State of Welfare: Unemployment, Employment Policies and Citizenship by Jorgen Goul Andersen, Jochen Clasen, Wim Van Oorschot, Knut Halvorsen Publisher: Policy Press | 2003-03 | ISBN: 1861344376 | PDF | 297 pages | 12 MB
It is often argued that European welfare states, with regulated labour markets, relatively generous social protection and relatively high wage equality (compressed wage structures), have become counter-productive in a globalised and knowledge-intensive economy. Using in-depth, comparative and interdisciplinary analysis of employment, welfare and citizenship in a number of European countries, this book challenges this view.
