Policy challenges in the welfare state
Recent trends and policy developments have called into question the divide between the provision of income support and social care services. This book addresses this theme with reference to key trends: individualisation, citizen responsibility, the decline of the married male breadwinner and new ways of supporting disabled and older people.
This book examines income-related housing allowance schemes in advanced welfare states as well as in transition economies of central and eastern Europe as a more efficient way to help tenants than rent controls or 'bricks and mortar' subsidies to landlords.
