This chapter analyses FBOs and their relationship to central-local government, and changes in welfare provision designed to combat social exclusion in the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. Questions are posed in relation to FBOs, welfare retrenchment and central-local government, raising the issue of whether FBOs are a substitute or complement as welfare providers. The chapter also speculates on the current and future role of FBOs in the context of the global economic crisis.

Keywords:   Economic crisis, Government, The Netherlands, Pillarisation, Welfare retrenchment, Spain, Sweden
