Analysing the History of British Social Welfare : Compassion, Coercion and Beyond

See all formats and editions

This book offers insights into the development of social welfare policies by exploring the interconnections between policies and practice throughout history. It challenges tacitly accepted arguments that favour particular approaches to welfare, such as conditionality and eligibility.

It provides examples of enduring social assumptions which influence the way we perform social welfare, such as the equivocal position of women in social welfare and the unintended consequences of reforms such as Universal Credit.

By identifying continuities in welfare policy, practice and thought, it offers the potential for the development of new thinking, policy making and practice.
