Since the late 1990s, new strategies concerning the role and shape of welfare states have been formulated, many of which are guided by a logic of social investment. This book maps out this new perspective and assesses both its achievements and shortcomings. In doing so, it provides a critical analysis of social investment ideas and policies and opens up for discussion many of Europe’s most pressing concerns—such as an aging population, the current economic crisis, and environmental issues— and whether social investment can provide adequate responses to these challenges.

About the Author:

 Nathalie Morel is a research associate at the Centre d’études européennes at Sciences Po Paris. 

Review:

“The first book that gives us a balanced and sophisticated analysis of what social investment policies entail and how they have been implemented across the advanced world. It will become the authoritative reference on welfare state reform for years to come.” (Gøsta Esping-Andersen, Universitat Pompeu Fabra)

Towards a Social Investment Welfare State? provides an excellent overview of the state and possible future development of social investment policies in Europe, notably in terms of thinking around policies that offer a more positive accommodation between markets and society.” (Peter Wells International Journal of Social Welfare)
