Example text

P. 70. 24It is important to note that neo-liberal ideology has not been embraced to the same extent as the other nations in this study. ” Thus, there has not been a significant withdrawal of the state from the social policy realm, nor is there significant evidence of a new neo-liberal discourse.

Third, welfare, as the fall-back option for those not having access to social security through the funds, is still stigmatized to a degree. Psychologically, for persons with disabilities there is an important difference between receiving welfare or socialsecurity benefits; people are often reluctant to apply for the former, and do not do so at all, or only at a very late stage. Thus, Germany has a generous but highly complex system which makes it very difficult to tackle the problems of disabled people directly and coherently.
