Social policy research in the UK, with special reference to crossnational comparative research: ZeS country report


  • Taylor-Gooby, Peter


The Country Reports on the State of Social Policy Research are published from time to time in the Working Paper Series of the Center for Social Policy. An experienced scientist offers an overview of the central institutions and persons in comparative and national social policy research in his or her country. These reports can never depict the whole landscape but they can help by focusing our attention on the strengths, the special expertise, and the special features of the respective research community as it confronts welfare state challenges and reforms in the 21st century. Each country report may provide its readers with a starting point for their own research, and it can point to the well-travelled networks and to the dominant issues at hand.
