The Boundaries of Welfare

Maurizio Ferrara

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the Trente Glorieuses (1945-1975), and identifies the first seeds of spatial reconfiguration in the field of social protection: the appearance of new membership spaces (e.g. supplementary pension schemes), the creation of the European Communities, and the establishment of a coordination regime regulating the social entitlements of migrant workers within the EC. The chapter discusses the original division of labour between the market-making functions of the EC, and the redistributive functions left to the member states. It also reconstructs the emergence of a distinct EC “constitutional order” and its creeping implications for national social rights through legal integration.
