GV4D4 - week 9

« Back to GV4D4

These are my notes from November 21 for GV4D4 at the London School of Economics for the 2017-2018 school year. I took this module as part of the one-year Inequalities and Social Science MSc program.

The usual disclaimer: all notes are my personal impressions and do not necessarily reflect the view of the lecturer.

Gender and Generational Inequalities


The Religious Foundations of Work-Family Policies in Western Europe by Kimberly Morgan

An essay from Religion, Class Coalitions, and Welfare States (PDF), published in 2010.

I also accidentally came across this review of her 2006 book Working Mothers and the Welfare State, from which I took the following notes:

How we Grow Unequal by Patrick Emmenegger et al

An essay from Age of Dualization published in 2012.

The Age of Welfare (PDF) by Julia Lynch

From 2004. Proposes that the age-orientation of a welfare state isn’t explained solely by the political demands of senior citizens; instead, we can see it as the unintended consequence of early structural decisions + voter competition.
