Abstract: Generous welfare policies are sometimes considered to be incompatible with influx of immigrants. This statement corroborates the group threat theory according to which social security is a privilege of the majority. However, it is also considered that generous welfare reduces anti-immigrant hostility by alleviating economic vulnerability of a country’s citizens. This study analyzes the relationship between welfare and anti-immigrant attitudes. It pays attention to the differences between active welfare policies and passive welfare policies, since they have different ideological bases and can have opposing effects on anti-immigrant attitudes; active policies are based on individualism, which may in turn weaken anti-immigrant attitudes while passive policies based on solidarity, which may in turn strengthen anti-immigrant attitudes. From the analysis of the cross-national data (World Value Surveys), the following results are found. In countries that allocate large budgets for active welfare policies, the citizens become more tolerant toward immigrants. Moreover, those who are unemployed become more likely to accept the equal distribution of resources between themselves and immigrants. On the contrary, in countries that allocate large budgets for passive welfare policies, the citizens have more of an exclusionary attitude toward immigrants. Although both policies reduce vulnerability to a certain extent, passive welfare is likely to be perceived as a privilege exclusively for citizens. Therefore, generous passive welfare can lead to the perception of group threats, unlike active welfare policies.

Abstract: Several approaches in the literature on compliance with international law trace non-compliance back to the decision-making stage. While enforcement approaches argue that the power of assertiveness during the decision-making stage positively affects compliance, legitimacy approaches put forward the fairness of the decision-making procedure. Yet, little attempts were made to provide an empirical underpinning for the theoretical claims that features of the decision-making process have a sustainable effect on implementation. This paper seeks to fill this gap by exploring to which extent policy-shaping might affect policy-taking of European Union (EU) policies by drawing on the case of national parliaments. It analyses the involvement of French Assemblée Nationale and the German Bundestag throughout the legislative procedure of two EU environmental directives and shows that neither power of assertiveness nor procedural legitimacy explains the subsequent transposition of these directives by the two legislatures. Yet, the study highlights that policy-shaping might affect policy-taking under the condition that it provides information on the rule and thereby enhances the capacity of implementing actors.

Abstract: This paper deals with accountability measures in French education policy and their development over time. Since the 1970s, a number of accountability tools have been introduced. A variety of policy experts and top civil servants from within and outside the Ministry of Education voiced their support for these tools. Yet their combination over the past four decades displays strong variations. In addition, these tools have not triggered the development of a systematic, highly formalised and cohesive accountability policy.

The paper makes three arguments. First, French accountability is very dissimilar to accountability in Quebec or some high stake accountability policies in North America. Second, the genesis of French “results-based steering” reveals that the latter is one particular form, among others, of accountability relations in education. The defining feature of this results-based steering is to rationalize and simplify these relations. Third, when looking at the implementation of this type of steering – studied through the emblematic case of the contracts signed between the central services of the Ministry and State regional education authorities –, it is clear that results-based steering constitutes an additional layer on top of other traditional powerful modes of regulation which does not have a transformative impact on them.

Empirical data is mainly drawn from a qualitative case-study of accountability tools in French education policy. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with national policy makers. Legal documents, press releases from the Ministry of Education and other relevant institutional actors, as well as a representative set of professional journals were analysed.
