The Welfare State has a Future!

We would like to announce the launch of a scientific animation that we made to summarize a key message from our programme, which is that welfare states are in remarkably good shape given the series of crises that Europe has undergone in the last decades, and that some common presuppositions about welfare states are based on fears and not facts.

The key reference sources for the animation come from the work of WSF researchers, and we list them here: welfarestatefutures.wordpress.com/scientific animation

On this occasion, I would like to say what a great experience it has been to be the Scientific coordinator for this programme and to wish everyone all of the best for their future!

With all best wishes,
Ellen Immergut
Scientific Programme Coordinator
