Conference theme

The Annual ESPAnet Conference 2009 focuses on the future of the welfare state. More precisely it will address paths of social policy innovation highlighting existing constraints, path dependencies and opportunities of social policy change. The conference provides a forum to address theoretical and methodological questions, to reflect on inter- and multi-disciplinarity in social policy research and to discuss new analytical trends. It will also deal with changing paradigms in the concept of the welfare state and in the actual configuration of social policy innovation in Europe and beyond. Shifts in underlying basic principles will also be addressed, ideas or objectives, and factors which might drive such changes and what directions they might indicate for the future of the welfare state.
