Re-designing the Institutional Configuration of Welfare State: The Multi-level Governance of Labor Market Polices

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Comparative research on the transformation of the welfare state has tended to focus on changes in the levels of generosity and content of social policies. Yet, authors have tended to overlook other manifestations of these changes, namely the modifications of labor market policy institutions and intergovernmental relations. In this context, attention must be paid to changes in ‘LMP governance,’ including the re-allocation of policy competences across levels of government. These institutional transformations are especially linked to the implementation of the ‘activation paradigm’ across advanced industrial states.
By using a multilevel governance framework, first, this paper highlights and explains a common cross-national pattern-- the re-design and implementation of new institutional (intergovernmental) models of LMPs across advanced industrial countries. Second, to explain the nature and direction of the spatial re-configuration of activation, the paper pays special attention to political parties´ positions on the issue. To develop the analysis, we use more than 100 interviews conducted at various levels of government in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium and Sweden. Furthermore, we refer to official documents and reports. By analyzing the spatial re-configuration of LMPs, this paper highlighting the key role of the activation paradigm in driving the multi-level governance of LMPs.
