  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Handbuch Sozialpolitik

Zusammenfassung

Dieses Kapitel gibt einen Überblick über Beiträge des „Varieties of Capitalism“ Ansatzes zur Sozialpolitikforschung. Der „Varieties of Capitalism“ Ansatz inspirierte die Bildung neuer Thesen in zwei Bereichen: (a) Thesen zu den Auswirkungen staatlicher Sozialpolitik auf industrielle Produktion und Qualifikationssysteme; und (b) Thesen zu den politischen Grundlagen von Sozialpolitik, mit Fokus auf die Präferenzen von Arbeitgebern und auf Klassenallianzen. Das Kapitel evaluiert die empirische Evidenz für diese Thesen auf Basis der Forschungsliteratur. Die Literatur wird unterteilt in Studien zur historischen Entstehung des Sozialstaats und Studien zur Reformpolitik seit den 1980ern.
