Welcome to our project website "Welfare Policies in the Enlarged Europe".

This comparative research project analyses the development of welfare policies in Europe since the end of the Cold War - including the underexposed patterns in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) - by collecting and analyzing aggregate data on welfare programs and institutions in 26 European countries.

The data collected within the project is embedded in the Comparative Welfare Entitlements Dataset 2 (CWED2) in cooperation with Prof. Lyle Scruggs. Prospectively, the data will be extended to include several additional household types.

You will find more detailed information about our working program, our theoretical and methodological framework and the project timeline under Project Overview.

Following Research Staff you will find information about the members of our research team. Publications & Working Papers will be added continously.

New information will be added as soon as it becomes available. So check back regularly!
