Understanding social citizenship

'...this book is designed as a core text; but it will be useful not just to

teachers and students but also to social policy practitioners and

politicians because the contested and complex concept of citizenship now

informs debate on all manner of social policy issues, as this book amply

shows.' - Citizen's Income Newsletter

"A second edition of this excellent book is most welcome. Dwyer's understanding of social citizenship is second to none and this new edition provides an updated discussion and assessment of all the practical and theoretical issues that students need to know about this important area of study." Nick Ellison, University of Leeds

Peter Dwyer is Professor of Social Policy at the University of York, UK. His research and teaching focuses on social citizenship. He led the large ESRC fundedWelfare Conditionality:Sanctions Support and Behaviour Change (2013-2018) project.
