Summary and Info
While reforms of welfare policies have been widely analysed, the reform of welfare administration has received far less attention. Using empirical case studies, this book provides significant new insights into the way welfare administration is being internationally transformed. Particular attention is given to the effect on welfare clients, staff and agencies. "Administering welfare reform" presents a critical analysis of governance practices in welfare administration; examines shifts in the participants, practices and processes of welfare administration; presents original empirical case studies that highlight the effects of reforming welfare governance on welfare subjects, staff and agencies; provides a much-needed international and comparative perspective of changing welfare governance. This book is aimed at scholars and advanced students of sociology, social policy, economics, public administration and management, as well as social policy practitioners and service delivery workers. The book will particularly interest those who want to critically understand the changing interactions between social policy and its administration, their impact on the welfare state, and differences in national experiences.
