The claim that economic globalization ‘necessitates’ the retreat of the welfare state in advanced instrialized democracies has been widely disseminated in contemporary political, academic and mediate discourse. Subject to vigorous analysis by scholars from a variety of disciplines, the theoretical basis of this claim, and the empirical evidence mounted in its defence, has been systematically critiqued over the last decade. This reader bring together, for the first time, the leading voices in scholarship critical of the ‘inevitability thesis’ on welfare.
