02.12.2019 Dr. Steven Klein (University of Florida): Making a democratic welfare state (


“It is about the dilemmas and possibilities that the social welfare state presents to political movements aspiring to enact democratic transformations By democratic transformations, I mean a mode of politics that brings critical scrutiny upon previously unchallenged and rigid forms of domination and that thereby seeks to change, not just the distribution of material goods or the electoral fortunes of a particular party, but the basic structure of social relationships. As a confrontation between the first modern, nation wide social welfare institutions and a movement seeking such democratic transformations, the confrontation between Bismarck and the SPD distils the questions I address: Can democratic political movements use social welfare institutions to achieve lasting change in society? Or will participation in hierarchical state structures inevitably dissipate the transformative aspirations of such movements?”
