By explaining the path of extrication from state socialism, this book
clarifies the patterns of the welfare state’s transformation in Central
and Eastern Europe, at the national and EU level. It identifies the
emergence of a peculiar Eastern European welfare regime through the fusion
of pre-communist (Bismarck social insurance), communist (universalism,
corporatism and egalitarianism) and post-communist features (market-based
schemes). The author concludes by reflecting on how Eastern welfare states
will fit in the future EU welfare regime.
