How do most industrialised countries publicly manage social risks? What are the principles that underpin these arrangements and how can we explain the differences between countries? Why do we want to compare the social policies of different countries? How can we meaningfully compare such policies? This unit examines these questions by comparing welfare state activity in particular spheres and explores some of the key practical, methodological and theoretical issues facing those comparing welfare states.
