Religion and Welfare in Europe examines social change in Europe in recent years and how it relates to religion, minority populations, and gender, and their interacting effects on inclusion and conflict. Bringing together international experts in a wide range of fields, the book looks closely at various practices of social service provision in a number of different countries, exploring links between values, welfare, and social change, with particular attention to changes brought about by recent austerity measures.
Review Quotes
Stephanie Sinclair, Open University
"A fascinating volume exploring religion, gender, minorities, and welfare in Europe, offering significant insights into the link between values, welfare, and social change."
Rana Jawad, University of Bath
"This is a timely and authoritative text—fit for students and experts alike—which builds on the insights of the WaVE research to shed new light on gender issues and minority religious groups in Europe. The comparative perspective encompassing diverse national settings provides an important backdrop for analyzing some of the key social welfare implications of an increasingly culturally diverse continent."
