The conference, held within the FEPS Next Left Research Programme with the support of Policy Network and Renner Institute – will be a continuation of the first event of this series, as held in 2012 and as summarised in the volume “Progressive Politics After Crash. Governing from the left“.

This year’s exchange “Pre-distributive Social Policy: Future Changes in Welfare Societies” will set out to look in greater detail at concerns regarding how states alter the underlying distribution of market outcomes so as not to rely on post hoc redistribution through the welfare state, i.e. pre-distribution strategies and how these connect politically with core social democratic preoccupations such as securing the support of middle income and younger voters. It will critically explore the extent to which the move away from the traditional welfare state has implications for economic efficiency and social justice. New Welfare State models have been welcomed in raising employability but experts have warned about the impact on wage inequality and social mobility.
