This chapter examines the capacity of welfare reforms to deliver their objectives, focusing on increasing responsiveness to individual needs and strengthening central control. Based on a comparison of experiences in Germany, Denmark and Switzerland it shows that none of the countries gained clear-cut achievements on the goals. It concludes by discussing the extent to which efforts to promote more responsiveness and more control have been successful in the three countries.

Keywords:   Welfare reforms, Delivering objectives, Responsiveness, Central control, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland
