from social citizenship to active citizenship
Neoliberal reforms have transformed government thinking about social citizenship rights but have they also changed public support for these rights? This chapter explores this key research question and the analytical framework used to explore it, situating neoliberalism as a coherent yet diverse process that will be studied across three countries, three decades and four major policy areas. The chapter also discusses the methodology used to explore policy feedback through both quantitative survey data and qualitative interview and focus group data. An overview of the book argues that by the 2010s the public had ‘rolled-over’ and accepted some of neoliberalism’s tenets but there is also evidence of the kind of ‘grit’ that could inhibit the smooth running of neoliberalism in the future.
