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

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.
