2010 (English)In: Welfare and Religion in 21st Century Europe: Volume 1, Configuring the connections / [ed] Bäckström A & Davie G, Aldershot: Ashgate , 2010Chapter in book (Other academic)
This is an overview of the relationship between welfare regimes and majority churches in eight selected countries in Europe. It shows that there is a connection between the evolution of the respective welfare regime and the religious organisation prevalent in the country studied. It also shows that a changing role of the welfare state and of religious institutions give religious organisations both an innovative role and a voice in the public debate on solidarity values.
