Chapter 2 explores how welfare has been reshaped in the last decades as a transactional form of welfare came to reign in a society in love with the market. It outlines the growth in inequality in the context of neo-liberalism and the trajectory of child protection policy and practice in that context. It locates contemporary policy developments within New Labour's project of social investment and managerialism and explores how this has been sharpened in austerity.

Keywords:   Welfare, child protection, neo-liberalism, inequality in society, governance, austerity
