Centre for Welfare State Research

  • Building and understanding the Welfare State 

    The Centre is truly interdisciplinary in that it includes political scientists, economists, historians, literary researchers and sociologists. 

    The Centre’s research areas include the normative foundation of the welfare state and its development in a comparative and historical perspective, responses of the welfare state to external challenges and the impact of welfare state on individuals.  

    The Centre is active academically in several international projects and networks, and also contributes to public and political debate domestically.

    The CWSR focuses on four main research areas:

    Comparative Welfare State Studies

  • Historical Development of the Welfare States
  • Language and Concepts of the Welfare State
  • Social Science Methodology
