CCSS03: Prospective Observatory of Social Policies and Intervention

oppsis_sidebar

Nowadays, the welfare state, social policies and intervention are increasingly topics of discussion. This period can be qualified as a moment of uncertainty in the field of social sciences which has a number of factors, such as the demographic evolution, the aging population, the economic situation and the transformation of labour-market structures, as well as the modifications in family units and new migration flows.

All these phenomena, completed by other factors, such as the emerging social needs and the urgent need for new forms of social intervention, require rethinking traditional social measures and defining new horizons.  Welfare state and civil society are the main topics of this study, which will be considered by the researchers during the implementation of a number of new instruments in order to foster social welfare. The current circumstances of society point out the need to analyze social changes resulting from new tendencies of welfare policies.
