Abstract

The study of welfare states and social policy has enjoyed growing popularity in the last four decades. Emerging from primarily descriptive studies of state-provided welfare, social security, and health institutions and from relatively crude quantitative and qualitative comparative studies, this field has been characterized by a growing level of theorization, richer case study analyses, inclusion of additional sources of welfare provision (nonprofit, market-based, informal, family), and increasingly complex, accurate and up-to-date cross-national comparative analyses (Castles, 2004; Clasen & Siegel, 2007; Ferrera, 2008; Huber & Stephens, 2001; Mabbet & Bolderson, 1999).
