This fascinating study evaluates whether the recent focus on human rights, citizenship and values makes a difference to service delivery on the ground. In doing so, it bridges the social policy and human rights literature.

The book adopts a comparative approach with eight case-studies examining the factors that drive policy making in a range of policy sectors in both EU and non-EU countries. The contributing authors explore the ways in which legally enforceable rights and wider rights discourse influence the services that are provided across a range of policy sectors and welfare regimes. Further issues, such as how patterns of service provision can affect how people view and experience citizenship, are also discussed.

Human Rights and Social Policy will strongly appeal to academics and students interested in work and family policies, labour market activation policies, welfare reform, gender, children’s policy and housing policy.
