Abstract

Changing Relations of Welfare is concerned with the complexities of family relations and practices in the recent past and how these have been imagined, addressed or elided in policy making. Organized around the themes of marriage, parenthood and employment in family policy, and migration and multiculturalism, this book investigates how debates about responsibility, obligation and rights have been gendered in social policy and welfare practice. It also considers the intersections of family, gender, race and nationality and the different ways in which legislation and policy in northern Europe have been used to regulate not only immigration but also the lives of migrant families.
