Scandinavian Welfare Policy provides new insights into the evolution of welfare state measures by focusing on developments in the Nordic welfare states - Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark - during the past decade. Including chapters from over twenty contributors, this comparative work examines the changed preconditions of welfare policies, analyzes changes in welfare measures, investigates developments in the welfare of the people, and looks at developments in public support for the welfare states. Scandinavian Welfare Policy will provide a new understanding of Northern European welfare and will be of interest to students of social policy, sociology and welfare studies as well as for academics, policy makers and analysts in social policy.
