Abstract:

This presentation will review some of the findings of the NORFACE Welfare State Futures Programme in general, as well as the HEALTHDOX project on Health Care Futures specifically, with a view towards assessing the state of solidarity in Europe today. In particular, drawing on an analysis of the impact of electoral and party competition on the recalibration of ‘old’ versus ‘new’ social rights, Immergut argues that the rise of relative deprivation and right-wing populism are a threat to social investment policies.


A background paper on European solidarity can be found here.
