• The paper proceeds from the assumption that globalization has placed significant constraints on the autonomy of nation states in the making of social policy. It argues that the post-World War II welfare state represented a social system highly successful in combining economic efficiency and dynamism with equity and solidarity. This historic achievement at the nation-state level is being undermined by economic globalization. abstract
• Indeed, unregulated globalization with its tendency towards the residualization of welfare that we are witnessing today represents a neoliberal approach. BUT AS WE SAW IN THE LECTURE THE NATION STATE HAS EXPANDED.
