  2. 2. Welfare Relationships : Voluntary organisations and local authorities supporting relatives of older people in Sweden

  3. 3. Political parties and welfare associations

    Author : Ingrid Grosse; Jonas Edlund; Apostolis Papakostas; Jonas Hinnfors; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Sweden; Norway; Scandinavia; Third sector; Voluntary organisations; Non-profit organisations; Cooperatives; Welfare policies; Childcare; Housing; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Scandinavian countries are usually assumed to be less disposed than other countries to involve associations as welfare producers. They are assumed to be so disinclined due to their strong statutory welfare involvement, which “crowds-out” associational welfare production; their ethnic, cultural and religious homogeneity, which leads to a lack of minority interests in associational welfare production; and to their strong working-class organisations, which are supposed to prefer statutory welfare solutions.

    Abstract : This dissertation deals with the period bridging the era of extreme housing shortages in Stockholm on the eve of industrialisation and the much admired programmes of housing provision that followed after the second world war, when Stockholm district Vällingby became an example for underground railway-serviced ”new towns”. It is argued that important changes were made in the housing and town planning policy in Stockholm in this period that paved the way for the successful ensuing period. READ MORE
