Objectives This section draws on the distinction of welfare states in Continental European, Nordic and Anglo-Saxon countries, which is one of the dominant conceptualisations of institutional differences among social protection systems. Students become familiar with the defining characteristics of three principally distinct ways of organizing social protection and understand the historical lineages, normative, political and social contexts of these distinct institutional arrangements. They also consider the social, economic and political consequences of the different ways of organizing welfare production and practice their skills in comparative reasoning.
