Government activity in this area impacts directly on all citizens, and consequently social security policy is the focus for much debate. People are affected by social security whether by funding it through taxation, or using it when claiming unemployment or other benefits.

This book explores the changes to social security provision and coverage in the context of these developments and of widening national and international poverty and book argues that the policy initiatives have altered the nature of social security and in doing so have significantly transformed the nature of social citizenship.
