How effective is the British government's attempt to reduce child poverty? by David Piachaud( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new Labour Government in Britain has made the reduction of child poverty one of its central objectives. This paper describes the specific initiatives involved in Labour's approach and weighs them in terms of their potential impact. After setting out the extent of the problem of child poverty, the causes are discussed, and Britain's problem is set in an international perspective. The impact on child poverty of policies designed to raise incomes directly is analyzed using micro-simulation modeling. A major emphasis of current policy is on the promotion of paid work, and the paper explores the potential for poverty reduction of increasing the employment of parents. It finds that at its maximum, increasing paid work could roughly double the reduction in child poverty achieved by tax and benefit policies alone, a combined decrease of 1.85 million children in poverty. However, a more realistic forecast of increases in parental employment suggests that the number of children in poverty may be reduced by one million by 2002. The policies that address long-term disadvantage are also discussed, the whole program is assessed, and future strategy is considered. (Contains 26 references.) (SM)

European social policy : models and rationales by Mark Kleinman( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the declared aim of the Social Charter that the social dimension of the Community be given the same importance as the economic dimension. Despite this, the EC currently lacks any consistent or comprehensive social philosophy of policy. State intervention in the form of social policy can be justified mainly on the grounds of efficiency, equity, or solidarity. The appropriate level of intervention-local, regional, national or EC-should be considered as a separate question. In terms of efficiency, issues are raised about diversity versus uniformity, about the existence of cross-national externalities, and about imperfect information. In equity terms, closer European integration raises issues about disparities and inequalities both within and between member states. The question of the type of social policy appropriate to the European level cannot be separated from the wider question of the tyep of Europe envisaged. Four models are considered: a Customs Union; economic integration ('1992'); federation; and a European super-state. Each of these models of the EC have quite different implications for social policy. In practice, economic and political factors have influenced and will continue to influence the development of European Social Policy. Moreover, in reality, social policies do not have equal importance with policies to promote economic integration: expenditure on the Structural Funds, for example, represents less than 6% of the estimated economic gain accruing to the Community from the completion of the internal market
