Thesis

The politics of negative expansion

Alternative title:
The left's turn to fiscal welfare for low-income groups in Britain and France in the 2000s
Abstract:

This thesis analyses a particular social policy episode: that of the turn to tax credits (instead of benefits) to support low-income groups in France and Britain in the 2000s. It asks about the rationale that led left-wing governments in both countries to deviate from institutional traditions in matters of income-support, and to instead use policy instruments pertaining to a seldom-studied domain of social policy: fiscal welfare, or tax provisions serving a social policy purpose.
