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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Abstract : Sweden is often described as a country with a strong welfare state and little voluntary work. This is as would be expected according to substitution theory, in which extensive welfare systems are assumed to crowd out voluntary activity and thereby limit the potential for voluntary work – there is an inverse relationship between voluntary and statutory activity.

  3. 3. Political parties and welfare associations

    University dissertation from Umeå : Sociologi

    Author : Ingrid Grosse; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; 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.
