This chapter begins with a review of the challenges faced by European welfare states in the 1990s and the solutions to these challenges. It then discusses how changes in welfare states can be analysed; changes to the cultural and structural basis of citizenship; and new approaches to social policy and citizenship. The chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to improve, from a comparative perspective, our understanding of the causes and effects behind the changing relationships between social policy, marginalisation, and citizenship. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   European welfare states, citizenship, social policy, marginalisation
