Reframing Social Citizenship

Peter Taylor‐Gooby

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses social citizenship and identifies three main components: reciprocity (necessary to support horizontal redistribution), social inclusion (supporting vertical redistribution), and trust in institutions (vital to the political legitimacy of the enterprise). It reviews current challenges to the welfare state from population ageing, changes in family and household patterns and in the labour market, the growing assertiveness of citizens, and other factors, and briefly examines government responses in Europe.

Keywords:   citizenship, reciprocity, inclusion, trust, welfare state, social provision, ageing, family change, labour market, crisis
