Changes to the welfare system in post-modern society
AbstractThe post modern society has increased the welfare state crisis, and strengthened the relationship between economy and society. The literature considers the welfare as a maker of local development. The social policy is able to produce health, social capital and capability. These aspects are called “social determinant of the development”. The post modernity increased also the different kind of “course of live” and social risks. The welfare state has produced a standardization of the services, but this differentiation breaks this kind of answer to social needs. The needs differentiation requires services more personalized. The welfare mix has increased and differentiated the producers of welfare’s services. This aspect requires new way of regulation able to integrate hierarchy, market and network. This approach requires a revision of governance technologies in order to avoid an increase of bureaucratic procedures
