Redesigning the "Welfare Mix" for Families: Policy Challenges

by Jane Jenson

In Redesigning the "Welfare Mix" for Families: Policy Challenges, Jenson explores the notion of the welfare mix, outlines the current challenges common to many countries, and examines the responses of the countries of the European Union and the United States. This sets the stage for an exploration of the responses of Canadian governments, useful comparisons with experience abroad and suggestions for a more robust welfare mix in Canada.
