My intention is to study welfare state change from a broad theoretical perspective by paying attention to social (care) services. Social care is a good object to evaluate the gendered, generational and class-based dynamics of welfare policies and NPM changes at the national and local level of welfare provision. The main objectives are the following:

1) To develop theoretical tools for the assessment of welfare state change in the context of service provision.
2) To study national and local level reforms of care policies to better understand the dynamics of NPM reforms (such as marketisation and informalisation) and other drivers behind change.
3) To elaborate new citizenship discourse and its manifestation in care policies by looking at freedom of choice, responsiblisation and participation.
4) To compare care policies and practices within regimes considered ‘most unlike’ - social democratic (Nordic) regimes and liberal (Anglo-American) regimes.
5) To evaluate the overall change and its dimensions such as deuniversalisation, marketisation and informalisation.

The main conceptual tools in the research are change, universalism and citizenship. The study aims at defining what change is about and how one could study both discontinuities and stabilities or path-dependencies. Universalism is an important conceptual framework in assessing the Nordic Welfare Model (NWM). What has happened to the Nordic universalism? Universalism will be studied both as a theoretical (principle of redistribution) and political concept. Besides change and universalism, citizenship constitutes a major theoretical tool for analysing welfare state change. In this study, the political notion of active citizenship is taken under scrutiny.
