Chapter 12 Change or Continuity in Europeans’ Welfare Attitudes?
Restricted access

With the repetition of the ESS welfare attitudes module in 2016/17, we have a unique opportunity to examine how the 2008 financial crisis might have affected Europeans’ attitudes towards the welfare state. This chapter summarizes the main findings and implications of this ‘natural’ experiment. We start by describing in greater detail the theoretical expectations and interpretations presented in the different chapters. Why and how would there have been change (or continuity) in welfare attitudes between 2008/09 and 2016/17? After that, we summarize the empirical findings and offer a more general conclusion and some suggestions for future research.
