More About This Textbook

Overview

This informative volume addresses the impact of the EU on national policies to combat poverty in European member states. The editors bring together leading academics to discuss the issue of and fight against poverty in Germany in particular, within the context of ongoing trends and debates across other European states. In doing so, they expose the German audience to European perspectives and experiences of poverty, while at the same time providing the international audience with detailed information on empirical trends. The book also provides documentation of the debate on social policy strategies and practices in Germany. It will be of particular interest to anyone working in or studying welfare, public policy or public welfare and labour economics.
