Loic Wacquant responds to the various contributions earlier in the book reiterating the central aspects of his argument regarding the shift from punitive welfare, to workfare to prisonfare in the USA – a process he is also able to detect in aspects of European public policy. He also poses a question about a seeming lack of dialogue between social welfare policy researchers and criminologists given that disciplinary social welfare and the penalisation of insecurity are core aspects of the ‘neo-liberal turn’.
