Summarized Findings and Conclusion

  • Ingmar J. Schustereder


The aim of this dissertation has been to analyze the recent development process of advanced capitalist welfare states. Against this backdrop, the author has examined the central challenges of contemporary social policy. Precisely, two types of welfare state challenges have been distinguished: on the one hand, post-industrial developments involving processes of deindustrialization, population ageing, household structure transformation, and welfare state maturation (see also Pierson, 2001a); on the other hand, global economic forces originating from product, capital, and labor market globalization.
