The shifting shape of social security • Resolution Foundation

The shifting shape of social security • Resolution Foundation | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Voters face a stark choice at the upcoming election about the social security system they want. The turning of the tide on austerity means that the battle is no longer over whose benefits are being cut. But, instead, it’s the legacy of those cuts – some of which are still in the process of being rolled out – that unavoidably forms the backdrop to what comes next. To make sense of what’s going on, this report examines how the provision of social security in Britain has changed over time; the big trends and developments that current social security policy needs to take account of; and the policy offer from our three main Great Britain-wide political parties.
