Globalization, Inequality, and Diversity

(p.163) 10 Globalization, Inequality, and Diversity
Reframing Social Citizenship

Peter Taylor‐Gooby

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the challenges to social citizenship resulting from greater diversity and inequality in a more globalized world. Migration has led to tensions in social provision in many western countries. Globalization and labour market change have generated greater inequality, and opportunities for social mobility seem to be declining. These changes generate substantial and growing challenges to the stability of welfare states. Evidence from recent studies, however, indicates that the problems can be addressed, provided that governments are willing to show political leadership and pursue policies that redistribute resources on a citizenship basis to mitigate inequalities and offer equal access to opportunities across all social groups.

Keywords:   migration, diversity, equality, globalization, challenges, leadership, redistribution, reciprocity, inclusion, trust
