Welfare to Work

Amir Paz-Fuchs

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces contemporary welfare-to-work programmes in the United States and Britain. It focuses on the way contemporary welfare-to-work programmes are characterized by the conditioning of benefits upon obligations. Employing the same four rationales used when assessing the Poor Law programmes (deterrence, economics, morality and quid-pro-quo), the chapter draws attention to the existence of the conditional attribute of welfare programmes by outlining the rationales motivating each type of conditioning.

Keywords:   unemployed, Personal Responsibility and Work Orientation Reconciliation Act, Jobseeker's Act, Welfare Reform, deterrence, economic rationales, morality of welfare, quid-pro-quo, conditionality
