Publication year:

Pagination:

Place of publication:
Aldershot

This book brings together some of the leading  experts to discuss the rationale for welfare to work policies, their limitations and problems encountered in practice. Contributors address topics ranging from the linkages between social security and the labour market to how the welfare to work agenda is responding to the needs of special groups such as lone parents, the long-term unemployed and those with a disability. The book puts the arguments and ideas that underlie the new welfare reform agenda under the microscope and explains how it is being implemented in an international context. Several new data sets are analyzed in a collection that covers developments in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Norway, the UK and the US, as well as several comparative studies. In doing so, this volume helps to bridge the gap between research and policy and demonstrates how policy can respond to the challenges it faces.

"Well, it's become a way of life"

Authors:
OLSEN Bennedichte C.Rappana, LANGEGENG Per Inge
Journal article citation:
Nordisk Sosialt Arbeid, 16(1), 1996, pp.21-32.
Publisher:
Universitetsforlaget AS

Based on their study of organisations for the disabled and their members, the authors conclude that active participation in the organisation is of great importance to the members, particularly those who are disabled themselves, but also to parents of disabled children. The greater the disability is felt in everyday life, the greater the importance of the organisation. A clear tendency is that the smaller organisations, those for people suffering from little-known diseases, mean more to their members than do the larger ones. The organisations importance in providing practical and psychological support is discussed, with emphasis on how participation can change every-day lives of the members. Finally, the article points to the dangers of organisational life as a way of isolation within the peer group, and a perpetuation of the "sick-role".
