In the run up to the LSE Festival: Beveridge 2.0 rethinking the welfare state for the 21st Century; we bring together a panel to discuss the relationship between literature and poverty. They reflect on questions such as: do you need money to access literature? If not why are there comparatively few working-class writers? And can literature actively play a part in reducing financial hardship?
Identity and the Welfare State: evolving challenges for sustaining social solidarity
19th Feb 2018 18:30 | The London School of Economics and Political Science
Central to the promise of the Beveridge Report is the assumption of social solidarity: we need a cohesive society to support social protection; and the resulting shared safety net should increase cohesion even further. Yet as the country and its welfare state evolved; so did the social bonds on which they depended. Given what we know about human behaviour and experience; what prospect is there for the level of solidarity needed to carry Beveridge’s vision into the twenty-first century?
