Was macht eigentlich der Wohlfahrtsstaat?
The recent discussions about the role and the transformation of the state in modern European and North American societies help to reanalyze the “prehistory of the present” of welfare states. This essay sketches six dimensions of welfare-statefunctions in the 20th century : the transitions from warfare to welfare, the management of life chances, the construction of work and non-work, redistributions, inclusion and exclusion, and knowledge production. With a series of historical, notnormative, observations, the article tries to show that certain welfare-state functions are indispensable even if one allows for a neo-liberal point of view. But, it also argues that such a pragmatic view needs to recognize the darker as well as the brighter sides of 20th-century governmentality in social policy.
