Social policies and social control

Policy Press

This book has investigated a number of questions that seek to evaluate how far social control and behaviourist ideas are common ground across a range of welfare, education, health and care policy fields. The chapters in this collection demonstrate that there is indeed a broad pattern of similarities in behaviourist approaches across a range of territories. This final chapter looks at the core themes that are running throughout the collection that map how social policy today in the UK is exclusionary. This conclusion will summarise what these similarities are by drawing out the main conclusions across the social policy terrain.

Keywords:   Big Society, Behaviourist approaches, Social control
