The concept of the welfare society is under constant
transformation and pressure. The Nordic countries are
identified as models for the welfare state system. However,
a revised perspective on the concept includes a broader
definition of the social production of well-being. The book
investigates the relation with non-governmental bodies,
civil society, and social commons to public services and
places strong focus on the inclusion of disadvantaged
groups. Is the concept of the welfare society an aim for
social development from a European perspective?  The
International Consortium for Social Development is an
organization of practitioners, scholars and students in the
human services that addresses this question.
