The Development of Workfare within Social Activation Policies

The Development of Workfare within Social Activation Policies

(p.197) Chapter 8 The Development of Workfare within Social Activation Policies
Resisting Marginalization

Duncan Gallie (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the extent to which social activation policies have incorporated principles of ‘workfare,’ which requires people to work in exchange for social assistance benefits. Welfare programmes in Europe and the United States are compared. Welfare provision in Europe is characterised by a move away from entitlement to conditional aid. Welfare in the US combines an end to entitlement with an emphasis on harassment rather than help.

Keywords:   workfare, social activation policies, welfare programmes, Europe, United States, social assistance benefits
