The East Asian Welfare Model: Welfare Orientalism and the State
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThere is increasing interest in East Asian welfare models as many politicians in both East and seek out examples to underpin their own ideas for reform. In this, the first broad ranging study of the East Asian welfare, the contributors explore the experiences of six societies in East Asia and make clear the realities behind the political rhetoric. They examine the role of the state within welfare systems using case studies of pensions, health insurance, housing and personal social services. The result is the only up-to-date detailed analysis in English of how these various systems have developed and will continue to develop in the future. It will be a valuable and wide ranging resource for both students and policy-makers alike.
