This chapter argues that responses to the pressures on welfare are shaped by the context of globalization and fiercer international competition. This inclines governments to develop policies that stress the responsibility and motivation of individual citizens or use targets and competition to make services more responsive and cost-efficient rather than increasing spending on provision along existing lines. It introduces the principal argument of the book: that the thorough-going reform programmes underway in many countries are, by and large, successful in meeting goals of greater cost-efficiency and responsiveness. However they do so at the cost of damaging the values that underpin social citizenship, in particular citizen trust in public services.

Keywords:   globalization, policy reform, rational actor theory, diversity, inequality, crisis
