This book offers an innovative account of social-control and behaviorist thinking in social policies and welfare systems and the impact it has had on disadvantaged groups. The contributors review various controls and impulsions that have been applied to individuals and households and how such interventions have narrowed social rights. They illuminate the links between social control developments, welfare systems, and the liberalization of economics, and they highlight the negative impact that behaviorist assumptions—and the subsequent strategies that have grown out of them—have had on the disadvantaged. Overall the volume provides a cutting-edge critical engagement with contemporary policy developments.
