9789221286554: The European Social Model in Crisis: Is Europe Losing its Soul?

The European social model―a system that combines economic growth with high living standards and good working conditions―has long been a guideline for setting government policy as well as a source of pride for the EU member nations. However, due to financial strains caused by the economic crisis and long-term social trends, many countries are now looking for ways to cut their most popular social programs.

Using case studies and detailed empirical evidence, this book examines how social policies are being dismantled in 13 EU member states (Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden, and the UK). The contributors use the findings from these studies to discuss a mix of policy reforms that could retain the main elements and features of the European social model, thus helping Europe preserve the essentials of its soul and identity.

The volume's timely warning about the dismantling of the European social model and its possibly devastating future effects―as well as the alternative options proposed―make it essential reading for policymakers and an invaluable reference for scholars and researchers of European studies and social policy.
