This chapter analyses the emergence of social-movement organisations initiated by social-security claimants in Norway during the 1990s. It asks whether these organisations were successful or have had an impact on public-welfare policy, even if many of them have been short-lived and unstable. The chapter shows that change in public policy is the area in which these organisations achieved the lowest scores so far. Many of the organisations' problems were related to their lack of recognition and whether it was appropriate for them to have a collective voice.
