Explores the idea of the social investment state in the context of Third Way thinking and practice. It considers the social investment state as: a normative ideal; a pragmatic response to the perceived economic and social challenges facing mature welfare states; and an analytical tool. Following a discussion of its evolution and key elements, the chapter explores the emergence of the social investment state in the UK and Canada. It offers a critical analysis of the treatment of children as citizen-workers of the future, drawing out the implications for children and also women.
