Social Democracy and Security

(p.199) Chapter 13 Social Democracy and Security
The Crisis of Social Democracy in Europe

Neil Walker

Edinburgh University Press

Social democracy has often been associated with liberal security policies or penal welfarism. Such approaches are, as the author shows, more difficult to sustain in the face of populism and a culture of security that tends to reject the economic and communitarian solutions of social democracy on grounds both of pragmatism and of morality. A social democratic security policy needs to address this issue.
