Catching up to reality : Building the case for a new social model

The Familly Network of the Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN) has just released the first of its new Social Architecture Papers. Catching up to reality: Building the case for a new social model , by Jane Jenson, Director of the CPRN's Family Network, traces the socio-economic patterns and underlying understanding and prescription (what she calls «social knowledge ») that shaped policy choices from the 1940s through the 1960s. She describes how new social realities challenge that social knowledge, and she identifies new knowledge that demands a policy response more appropriate to current conditions.

L'aide au conditionnel : la contrepartie dans les mesures envers les personnes sans emploi en Europe et en Amérique du Nord. DUFOUR, Pascale, Gérard BOISMENU et Alain NOËL. Montréal : Presses de l'Université de Montréal, 2003

Les politiques de soutien qui visent les sans-emploi sont de plus en plus souvent assorties de conditions que l'on regroupe sous le terme contrepartie. Parallèlement, l'aide tend à devenir moins généreuse. Ce livre étudie la transformation de ces politiques dans six pays : le Canada, les États-Unis, le Royaume-Uni, la France, l'Allemagne et le Danemark. Cette étude comparative transversale fait ressortir les relations entre les sans-emploi et l'État, le marché du travail et l'environnement social.

At the Margins of the welfare state : Social asistance and the allevation of poverty in Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom .
BEHRENDT, Christina. Ashgate Ed, 2002. Coll. Studies in Cash and Care (ISBN : 0 7546 1996 6).

Addressing one of the major puzzles in comparative welfare state research, this unique volume adopts a fresh perspective to examine why there is income poverty in highly developed welfare states. Focusing on the basic safety net of the welfare state, it offers a systematic and innovative analysis of the effectiveness of minimum income schemes in a comparative study across three highly developed welfare states: Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Blending insights from a combination of institutional information and quantitative data from income surveys, the author evaluates the causal mechanisms for the persistence of income poverty in highly developed welfare states and derives conclusions for political reforms.
