The Boundaries of Welfare

Oxford University Press

This chapter reconstructs developments of EC law (including case law) relating to social protection, and traces the differential impact that free movement and competition rules have had on the various functional schemes and tiers or pillars of provision within national welfare states. It also identifies and illustrates the new strategies of spatial politics prompted by the boundary redefinitions operated by the EU, focussing on pensions (including pension funds), health care, and social assistance. Special attention is devoted to the position of third country nationals.

Keywords:   negative integration, positive integration, mutual recognition, semi-sovereign welfare states, cross-border health care, social assistance, third country nationals, competition, compulsory insurance, pension funds
