Book's frontpage

 The publication shows the developments of the welfare states in the former Yugoslavia, after its disintegration up to the present date, especially on the examples of the pension- and health-care systems, the labour market and social inclusion policies. It provides an extensive overview of the different welfare systems’ developments, all-encompassing and comparative statistical data and a comprehensive portrayal of the most relevant actors who influenced the shaping of the welfare policies. By offering comprehensive insight into the state of affairs in the welfare sector in this part of South Eastern Europe, as determined by the given economic possibilities and the political milieu in a certain period of time, the book encourages integration of the region in the theoretical debate.
The book will therefore appeal to researchers and policy-makers interested in the region, social policy and transformation.
