Changing Welfare States with Anton Hemerijck

March 1st, 2013 in Event Highlights

Yesterday afternoon, Anton Hemerijck, Dean at the VU University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Social Sciences, and former director of the Netherlands Council for Government Policy (WRR), joined us for a presentation of his new book, Changing Welfare States. Following an overview of welfare state performance over the last two decades and the differential impacts of the financial crisis of 2008 across Europe, he turned to the challenges of welfare state provision in post-crisis Europe, arguing for a new model of welfare state that is able to equip European citizens and societies to face endogenous social change and growing global competition. Sigrun Olafsottir from BU’s Department of Sociology moderated the discussion.
