Beveridge 2.0 Reciprocity across the life-cycle
Tuesday 23 February 2021
The welfare state plays a central role in managing risks and tackling vulnerability across the life-cycle. This entails particular relationships between individuals and between generations. The design and financing of welfare state institutions need to adjust to emerging social and economic changes, raising questions about the relationships that underpin those institutions. This symposium invites scholars from across the School to create a cross-disciplinary dialogue addressing issues regarding the nature of reciprocity as a normative principle of social cooperation, as well as practical issues in specific policy areas, questioning the role individuals and the state can/should play.
