This work examines the concept of citizenship in relation to social policy, in the context of the rapidly changing European welfare states. Leading academics analyse concrete changes in social rights and citizenship roles, and offer theoretical investigations of citizenship and the welfare state. Issues discussed include: - citizenship versus residence as a basis for social rights - the relationship between rights and obligations - workers rights and non-workers rights - exclusion and inclusion in the labour market and community life - the relationship between social and political citizenship - poverty and social exclusion - new roles for citizens as clients, consumers and participants in the welfare state
