How the Swedish model was (almost) lost: migration, welfare and the politics of solidarity
2017 (English)In: Reimagineering the Nation. : essays on Twenty First Century Sweden / [ed] Aleksandra Ålund, Carl-Ulrik Schierup, Anders Neergaard, Bern Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2017, 41-83 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter analyses the shift from an expansive Swedish welfare state with full employment as its paramount priority to an austerity-driven neoliberal model subordinating social and employment policies to the goals of inflation control and debt reduction. The authors discuss implications of this for rising inequality and social exclusion, with a focus on the Swedish welfare state in general and immigration and integration policies in particular.
