The objective of this chapter is to put forwarda range of hypotheses capable ofaccounting for the observed patter of development of active social policies, observed in Chapter 3. It relies essentially on existing scholarship, by adapting theories developed to explain the expansion or the retrenchment of Western welfare states to the current reorientation movement. The chapter discusses different hypotheses on the theoretical level, leaving for later the question of how well they fit with empirically observed developments.

Keywords:   active social policy, welfare state theory, active labour market policy, childcare
