The interaction of political, economic, and social actors within the institutional context of the Dutch welfare state creates processes of social-risk protection. Drawing from institutional and rational-actor theories, this chapter looks for social mechanisms that play a role in explaining social-risk protection. These mechanisms, at the level of institutions, actors, and processes, are used to create a set of expectations that suggest what is likely to happen in the Dutch response to social risks.
