The Activation of Citizenship in Europe

Thomas Pfister

Published by Manchester University Press

Europe in Change MUP

  • By including a case study on Hungary - a post-socialist and recent EU member state - the book provides original insights far beyond the majority of comparative work in European integration, social policy, and citizenship studies
  • Due to its citizenship perspective, the book is able to go beyond purely analytical results generating conclusions of high normative relevance but equally based on empirical evidence
  • In contrast to the majority of institutional accounts of welfare state change, the comprehensive citizenship perspective uncovers the consequences of current transformation for the individual citizen
  • In particular, the focus on the gender equality dimension within the conceptual discourse about welfare modernisation allows for important insights in its implications in terms of exclusion and inequality
