Attitudes Among High-Risk Groups

(p.58) Chapter Three Attitudes Among High-Risk Groups
Contested Welfare States
Helena Blomberg, Johanna Kallio, Olli Kangas, Christian Kroll, Mikko Niemelä
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on groups with a greater-than-average risk of facing social problems such as poverty and social exclusion as compared to the rest of the population. It notes that the Nordic regime, closely followed by the Continental regime, has succeeded best in creating a subjective sense of security against future social risks. Evaluations of welfare state task performance seem to correspond with factual welfare state performance in terms of poverty and other social problems: High-risk groups in the Nordic countries and in Continental Europe are most satisfied with the performance of the welfare state, while high-risk groups belonging to the Southern European, the Anglo-Saxon, and particularly the Eastern European model have a far more negative view of the task performance of the welfare state.

Keywords:   Nordic regime, welfare state performance, poverty, social exclusion, Continental regime
