In fact, virtually all welfare states are going through a period of crisis and restructuring and social policy is central to the political debate in virtually all advanced industrial countries. In this respect, the identification of a number of ideal-types of social protection provides a picture of the options available for reform. It is necessary since nothing prevents policy-makers from developing completely new solutions to current problems. However if one looks at history, one will find that reforms have frequently been incremental, and that the example of foreign countries has played an important role (Ferrera, 1993: 126). In addition, in today’s highly interdependent world, purely national solutions to problems of this scale are increasingly unlikely (Bonoli, 1997).
In this respect, a classification of welfare states, and the subsequent identification of ideal-types, can give an approximate picture of the range of options available to policy-makers for policy reform. (The rest is ommitted)
