Join our panelists as they come together to discuss the new issue of the LSE Public Policy Review, Beveridge 2.0: The Supportive State.
The COVID-19 emergency is testing the protective capacity of welfare states in the most dramatic way. In virtue of their scale and nature, only the state can respond to on-going challenges, but policy responses need to be understood in relation to the capacity of different systems to provide protection and support.
Prior to the COVID crisis, recent years had seen a growing debate around different approaches to address human needs: these differed in a variety of ways – in terms of type and coverage of provision, level of generosity and conditionality arrangements – which in turn reflected different priorities and policy goals. The new issue of the LSE Public Policy Review, Beveridge 2.0: The Supportive State discusses a range of these approaches, from Universal Basic Income and Universal Capital Grants to Universal Basic Services. It also addresses the radical changes that have affected the development of social security systems and tries to understand contemporary challenges to provide human security more broadly.
