Patterns of Welfare Policies in Central and Eastern Europe
Chapter 6: Conclusion – from makeshift social security to sustainable welfare policies?
This chapter sums up the main findings of the book and its contribution to our understanding of contemporary welfare states in Europe. It also discusses the potential challenges the CEE welfare states are facing today because of their hybrid institutional and programmatic set-up. The CEE welfare states are no ‘cheapjack versions’ of welfare states in the European context, but new social risks, dualization of the labour market and financing the social insurance systems challenge welfare policies increasingly.
