Transforming the Dutch welfare state

Childcare policy has shifted dramatically in the Netherlands as perceptions of childcare as a social risk have changed, leading to the semicollectivisation of childcare. This chapter explores this development, examining how childcare is perceived by welfare-state actors and the social partners, and how these perceptions have changed across time, giving shape to a new form of welfare.
