Devolution and social citizenship in the UK

Misunderstood or not, Marshall still has a great deal to say in dialogue with other literatures because his concepts of citizenship give form to an otherwise messy group of ideas about state building, territory, the welfare state, and public policy. This chapter discusses the connection with literatures on territorial politics and the welfare state. It discusses the uses of Marshall for territorial politics by identifying the ways in which he helps analyse contemporary welfare and territorial politics, and the ways that examining the Marshallian frameworks helps understand the reality of social policy. In the course of relating Marshall's work to those large literatures, the chapter also reworks Marshall by putting emphasis on the independence, complexity, and interaction of the three elements of citizenship.
