(p.11) 2 Defining Active Social Policy
The Origins of Active Social Policy

Giuliano Bonoli

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses various attempts to capture recent change in social policy. These make reference to various labels, including ‘flexicurity’, ‘social investment’,andthe Third Way. These notions are discussed on the basis of the literature and found to be similar, though with different emphases. Active social policy can be seen as another label which tries to describe the current transformation. Because it is more neutral than the alternatives available, it is been selected for this book.

Keywords:   welfare state, active social policy, recalibration, activation, active labour market policy, childcare
