Social Exclusion in European Welfare States focuses on the complex relationship between economic welfare, labor market performance and social inclusion/exclusion. The contributors to the volume examine in detail the alleged trade-off between the social and economic capabilities of a society and their impact on the well-being of the citizens. Furthermore, they identify welfare regimes whose policies are more balanced in terms of prioritizing economic as well as social goals and, hence, are more successful in promoting social inclusion along with faster growth.
