Gender and Welfare State Regimes

Oxford University Press

Addresses two major questions posed by the book. The first is the extent to which gender cuts across and fragments welfare state regimes, and the second concerns the dynamics between the policy logics of gender regimes and welfare state regimes. Subsequently, the chapter turns to policy design and politics. Drawing upon the earlier chapters, important issues in the design of policies and their impact on gender inequalities are discussed. Finally, the chapter considers political factors—such as characteristics of women's movements, industrial relations frameworks, party constellations, and state structures—that are conducive or, alternatively, posed obstacles to policies reducing gender inequalities.

Keywords:   gender inequalities, gender policy, industrial relations, policy design, policy logics, political parties, state structures, welfare state, women's movements
