At a time when the future of the welfare state is the object of heated debate in many European countries, this edited collection explores the relationship between this institution and social rights. Structured around the themes of the role of social rights in the historical development of the welfare state, the increasing impact of market imperatives on social rights, and the relationship between social rights and questions of (in)equality and social exclusion/inclusion, the essays explore the impact of transformations in the welfare state upon social rights and their underlying rationalities and logics.

Written by a group of international scholars, many of the essays discuss a number of urgent and topical issues within social policy, including: the social rights of asylum seekers; the increasing marketisation of public welfare services; the care of the elderly; and the obligation to work as a condition of access to welfare benefits. International in its scope, and interdisciplinary in its approach, this collection of essays will appeal to scholars and students working in the fields of law and legal theory, sociology, social policy, and politics. It will also be of interest to policy makers and all those engaged in the debate over the future of the welfare state and social rights.
