The welfare state literature has often focused on the role of left-wing parties in welfare state expansion and retrenchment.
What about the welfare preferences of right-wing parties? Do different right-wing parties have diverse ideas and positions on key welfare issues? Does competition among right parties also involve welfare issues? What are the consequences of the rise of radical right parties for established welfare arrangements in the EU?
The Workshop addresses the main questions above in a largely under-researched field.
