The coalition government and social policy : restructuring the welfare state by Hugh M Bochel( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text responds to the political and policy changes made by the Coalition government up to the 2015 general election providing a reflection across the social policies of this government. It reflects on the first 100 days of the new UK Conservative government and considers the implications of decisions made in that period. In doing so it provides a timely assessment of the extent of change in social policies and the wider environment under the Coalition government in part, but by no means limited to, the impact of 'austerity.' It therefore provides a consideration of the major influences on policy under the Coalition
Modernising the welfare state : the Blair legacy by Martin A Powell( )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2022 in English and Undetermined and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tony Blair was the longest serving Labour Prime Minister in British history. This book, the third in Martin Powell's New Labour trilogy, analyses the legacy of his government for social policy, focusing on the extent to which it has changed the UK welfare state. Drawing on both conceptual and empirical evidence, the book offers forward-looking speculation on emerging and future welfare issues. The book's high-profile contributors examine the content and extent of change. They explore which of the elements of modernisation matter for their area. Which sectors saw the greatest degree of change? Do terms such as 'modern welfare state' or 'social investment state' have any resonance? They also examine change over time with reference to the terms of the government. Was reform a fairly continuous event, or was it concentrated in certain periods? Finally, the contributors give an assessment of likely policy direction under a future Labour or Conservative government. Previous books in Martin Powell's New Labour trilogy are "New Labour, New Welfare State?" (1999) and "Evaluating New Labour's Welfare Reforms" (2002). The works should be read by academics, undergraduates and post-graduates on courses in social policy, public policy and political science

The consumer in public services : choice, values and difference( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2022 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges existing stereotypes about the 'consumer as chooser'. It shows how we must develop a more sophisticated understanding of consumers, examining their place and role as users of public services. The analysis shows that there are many different 'faces' of the consumer and that it is not easy to categorise users in particular environments. Drawing on empirical research, "The consumer in public services" critiques established assumptions surrounding citizenship and consumption. Choice may grab the policy headlines but other essential values are revealed as important throughout the book. One issue concerns the 'subjects' of consumerism, or who it is that presents themselves when they come to use public services. Another concerns consumer 'mechanisms', or the ways that public services try to relate to these people. Bringing these issues together for the first time, with cutting-edge contributions from a range of leading researchers, the message is that today's public services must learn to cope with a differentiated public. This book will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of social policy and public administration. It will also appeal to policy-makers leading 'user-focused' public service reforms, as well as those responsible for implementing such reforms at the frontline of modern public services
