Is European integration creating a 'European Welfare State'? Should it be? In this invative study, Mark Kleinman shows that to understand the controversial social policy role of the European Union, we need to consider the impact of ecomic integration for both the scope and aims of social policy. This book provides the first comprehensive treatment of the ecomic and social aspects of European Social Policy, and draws important conclusions for the future of the European Union.
MARK KLEINMAN is Professor of International Social Policy, University of Bristol.
