An important contribution to the debates surrounding the evolution of the European welfare state model, this volume investigates the role that “ideational leadership” has played in the passing of structural reforms in the change-resistant German welfare state. Based on in-depth case studies of individual reforms in health care, pensions, and unemployment insurance since the early 1990s, Stiller illuminates the ways in which Germany has made the transition from its Bismarckian past to a hybrid welfare state.

Many states have undertaken reforms of varying kinds that are affecting different portions of their welfare caseloads. This report examines 5 states' early experiences implementing welfare reforms under waivers of Fed. law: Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Focuses on 3 key reform provisions: time-limited benefits, work requirements, and family caps, which deny cash benefits for additional children born to families already receiving AFDC.
