Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. In Denmark, Finland and Sweden the evolution of administrative law, including social welfare law, has been marked by a shift towards a stronger protection of the recipient s individual rights. The adoption of activation policies targeting recipients of social assistance has highlighted the tensions between decision-making concerning the implementation of these policies and the legislative efforts to promote the realisation of individual rights in the field of social welfare. An examination of the legislation in question and its implementation conditions shows that the realisation of individual rights is subordinated to the pursuit of organisational and other objectives. The findings of the study are used to formulate proposals for the promotion of individual rights based on the Nordic egalitarian model of citizenship. This critical assessment of activation policies should be of broad international appeal. It will be of interest to researchers in social policy, as well as those concerned with protection of rights.

Synopsis : In Denmark, Finland and Sweden the evolution of administrative law, including social welfare law, has been marked by a shift towards a stronger protection of the recipient's individual rights. The adoption of activation policies targeting recipients of social assistance has highlighted the tensions between decision-making concerning the implementation of these policies and the legislative efforts to promote the realisation of individual rights in the field of social welfare. An examination of the legislation enacted in the three countries to apply activation policies and the indeterminacy of legal rules demonstrates the subordination of individual rights and increases the imbalance in power relations. Suggesting the promotion of a more egalitarian model of social citizenship based on interactive contexts of decision-making, this examination of the Nordic welfare system should be of broad international appeal. It will be of interest to researchers in social policy, as well as those concerned with protection of rights.

Critique: 'This original and timely book, by an author who is equally committed to the pursuit of social policy goals and the protection of human rights, not only shows how activation programmes in Denmark, Finland and Sweden put the rights of vulnerable people at risk but also outlines how this situation should be tackled. It contains some extremely important lessons for countries like the UK, where the legal protection of human rights is considerably weaker than it is in Scandinavia.'
