Theos Report on the Future of Welfare

The wonderful, energetic – and generous – team at Theos have produced and made available another report, this one a collection of essays around the topic of welfare, seeking to address the key underlying issue: what is welfare for? ‘Without thinking through the purpose of welfare, the volume argues, we are unlikely to reform it in anything more than a piecemeal and pragmatic way.’

‘Theos invited some of the country’s leading thinkers on welfare to explore the moral logic of, and future hopes for, the welfare state. With a wide range of contributions from politics, think tanks and academia, a foreword from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and an afterword from Tony Blair’s former Head of the No. 10 Policy Unit, The Future of Welfare is a uniquely broad and important contribution to one of the biggest domestic political debates of the early 21st century.’

More information is available here, and the full report is available for download here.
