Welfare and living conditions

Our research analyzes social policy in light of its effects on public welfare, detailing traits exhibited by the evolution of the welfare state's benefits and services. Many of our projects incorporate comparative analyses of international and European perspectives. Central questions are: How does the shaping of services and social benefits effect living conditions? What is the nature of the interplay among stake-holders who participate in the formulation of welfare policy?
