Restructuring a Corporatist Welfare State: Managed Liberalization and the role of the state, the social partners and the market in Dutch social security and labor market policy

Romke van der Veen

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    This chapter deals with recent changes in the Dutch welfare state. I use an institutional perspective. This implies that I do not focus on levels of protection but on the way this protection is organized. Discussing the institutional structure of welfare states I focus on two issues: the way the different functions of the welfare state are organized in particular fields of social policy and the distribution of power and responsibilities across the actors involved: the state, the social partners and the market.
