Talk at the University of Vienna

Prof. Silja Häusermann was invited to hold a talk at the University of Vienna this week. Her presentation titled "Rethinking social policy conflict as politics
of priorities" introduced the general argument of the welfare priorities project saying that welfare state growth and cultural realignment have transformed welfare politics. Analysing actors' priorities rather than only positions reveals new divides, such as investment-consumption and welfare chauvinism, in today's welfare politics.
