The New Politics of Welfare:
Towards an “Emerging Markets” Welfare State Regime

About the Project

This research project aims to identify a new welfare regime in  emerging market economies and explain why it has emerged.

The project will compare China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey to test two hypotheses:

(i) emerging market economies are forming a new welfare regime that differs from liberal, corporatist and social democratic welfare regimes of the global north on the basis of extensive and decommodifying social assistance programmes

(ii) the new welfare regime emerges principally as a response to the growing political power of the poor as a dual source of threat and support for governments.

The project is led by Assistant Prof. Dr. Erdem Yörük and funded by the European Research Council.

Horizon 2020, Excellent Science, ERC Starting Grant 2016,  Project Number: 714868, Proposal Acronym: EmergingWelfare
