A Conceptual Model for Studying Social Welfare Policy Comparatively.
Hoefer, Richard
Journal of Social Work Education, v32 n1 p101-13 Win 1996
An institutional political process model for comparing social welfare policies is presented. Principal elements include each country's societal values, government institutions (operationalized as the role of interest groups), policy goals, and welfare system type. The model is demonstrated through a comparison of the dissimilar social welfare systems of Sweden and the United States. (Author/MSE)
