The politics of postindustrial welfare states Explaining cross-national variation in the adaptation to new social risks Giuliano Bonoli
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 2 | The late 2000s: a new « consensus » for the welfare state The 2000s have seen the emergence of a new « consensus » on social policy It puts emphasis on “social investment” Defended by international organisations, and, within countries, different political forces Countries have moved in this direction, but at a different speed and with different results
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 3 | Uneven progress towards the new welfare state Nordic welfare states have been considerably more successful in adapting the social investment model Continental European welfare states are lagging behind Puzzle: why, in spite of the strong consensus on the social investment model, is progress uneven?
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 4 | Examples of old and new social policies Old -Pensions -Survivors benefits -Short term unemployment benefits -Sickness benefits -Invalidity benefits New -Active labour market policies -In work benefits -Child care services -Family benefits -Parental leave
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 5 | It is justified to distinguish between two sorts of social policies, because: 1.They constitute responses to different social transformations (industrialisation/ postindustrialisation) 2.They have different objectives (decommodification/ labour market participation) 3.They target different groups 4.Why not?
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 6 | How do we explain divergence? Politics: Social vs. Christian democracy Vs. Liberals The relative timing of postindustrialisation, ageing and welfare state maturation Left power with economic openness The influence of women

| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 15 | Unpacking the timing hypothesis: a crowding out effect It is not time per se that matters, but the different configurations of variables that one finds at different points in time This can be conceptualised as a crowding out effect We can expect spending on old policies at time t to impact on spending on new policies at time t+ 1 We need to control for total social expenditure
| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 16 | Pooled time series analysis of spending on childcare and ALMPs ALMPs: spending data * 21 OECD countries, time t Childcare: spending data * 23 OECD countries, time t IV: strength of the Left, Christian democracy, trade openness, proportion of women in parliament, spending on old age (+ controls), at time t-1

| ©IDHEAP – | | 01/05/2015 | | Diapositive 19 | Conclusions ? We clearly need a multicausal explanation to account for the divergence Timing matters, through an institution-induced crowding out effect Politics also matters. But we need a more complex understanding of politics. Left parties are not identical across countries Need to focus on new cleavages (gender, age)
