The four organizers (Ewa Kaminska-Visser, Tobias ten Brink, Andreas Heinrich and Heiko Pleines) are the editors of the edited volume "Generosity of Social Policies in Socialist and Post-socialist States". The volume is to be published with Palgrave, within the book series Global Dynamics of Social Policy.
The volume will map and compare socialist and post-socialist approaches to social policies, their implementation and outcomes, with the focus on how the generosity of social policies – understood as the combination of their inclusiveness and the scope of benefits they offer – has been conceptualised in different socialist and post-socialist national contexts, how these conceptualisations have shaped the content of social policies, and finally, how the content of social policies has actually been implemented. The book will cover the geographic areas of the (former) Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as selected countries in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
The book will feature contributions from a number CRC projects (A03, A04, A05, B05, B09, B10 and B11), as well as research of colleagues from Leiden University, the University of Medical Sciences in Havana, Arkansas State University, and State University of New York.
The workshop's goal is to bring together the contributors in order to discuss the drafts of the chapters.
