Policy, 2004 - Political Science - 222 pages
Understanding social citizenship provides students with the knowledge and background necessary to understand the concept of citizenship in relation to UK, EU and global welfare institutions; covers a range of philosophical, historical and contemporary welfare debates and issues; explores social citizenship in relation to questions of inclusion and exclusion; combines analysis of competing perspectives on social citizenship with detailed discussion of social policies and uses easy-to-digest text boxes to aid learning and teaching. The book is essential reading for undergraduates in social policy, sociology, social work, politics and citizenship. It will also appeal to A/AS level students and their teachers, and those on access courses and foundation degrees who are studying welfare issues, citizenship and related topics. Undergraduate and postgraduate students who are studying Citizenship as part of their teacher training programmes will also find it relevant.
