Welfare State

The welfare state has changed substantially since its inception and now faces many new challenges.

This policy area draws together Class's work on the ideas that inspired the creation of the welfare state and what the new role of the welfare state will be in 2015 Britain.

The core part of our work on this subject is the Social State project which looks at what we can learn from Beveridge's analysis of society seventy years ago and how can we use this to chart an alternative course for a welfare state - or Social State - fit for 2015 Britain. This policy area looks at a range of welfare state concerns from education to welfare, employment to housing and health and universalism.
