Pierson’s „Dismantling the Welfare State?“ After 25 Years

Dismantling the Welfare State?, published 25 years ago, is a modern classic in the welfare state literature. Is there still something we can learn from Paul Pierson’s seminal book? Carsten Jensen, Georg Wenzelburger and Reimut Zohlnhöfer, in a new paper that just came out in the Journal of European Social Policy, suggest that the book indeed is worth a re-read.

New Article in JEPP

A new paper by Fabian Engler and Reimut Zohlnhöfer that has just been publishd in the Journal of European Public Policy investigates the effects of the recent changes in left parties’ voter base, from predominantly working-class to middle-class voters. According to classic partisan theory these changes should have resulted in changing policy positions and policy effects of left parties. We test this expectation for economic policies (i.e. subsidies, product market regulation, and privatization) in 16 European countries between 1980 and 2012. We find the expected relationships for subsidies but not for regulation and privatization. This can be explained by the fact that only with regard to subsidies, preferences substantially differ between the working- and the middle-class. Thus, economic policy preferences of voters of left parties diverge less than could be expected. Methodologically, the study suggests that empirically testing the complete causal mechanism of classic partisan theory, assessing voters’ preferences and investigating more than one issue area, are promising ways to study partisan effects on public policies.

Edited volume on the third Merkel Government

Together with Prof. Thomas Saalfeld (Bamberg University), Reimut Zohlnhöfer has edited a volume that takes stock of the policies and politics of the most recent German government, the Grand coalition under Chancellor Angela Merkel (2013-2017). The 27 German language chapters analyze all relevant policies from migration to fiscal policy and from the welfare state to European integration. Moreover, in other chapters, party strategies, electoral competition, interest groups, the Federal Constitutional Court, political leadership and coalition governance are investigated. The book is already published electronically with SpingerLink   and will be available as a hard copy very soon. Moreover, for English language readers, some of the chapters will be included in a special issue of the journal German Politics. Some of these papers are also already available at the journal’s homepage.
