Concluding comment to Part III book
This part has introduced the reader to the nature and range of ideological, theoretical and methodological perspectives used to analyse welfare provision and direct its practice. These perspectives are employed to justify state intervention in welfare policy and moreover are used to prescribe the level and extent of that intervention. What each of the different positions outlined allows us to do is to evaluate, against different criteria, the relative success or failure of (particularly government) social policy.
