Brexit Generation Game: How Conflict Between Old and Young Masks Welfare Challenges

Matthew Donoghue, Mikko Kuisma (July 2018): The second edition of our Brexit Paper Series with Social Europe sheds light on the intergenerational origins of the Brexit vote and the longer-term effect of Brexit in more detail, especially from a welfare perspective. Matthew Donoghue, Departmental Lecturer in Comparative Social Policy at the University of Oxford, and Mikko Kuisma, Research Fellow in Comparative Public Policy at the University of Tübingen, argue that both the past and the future of the UK welfare state in the context of Brexit depends rather more on the broader political economy framework than the intergenerational dimensions thereof.

Gender Balance of Power – Women’s Representation in Regional and Local Government in the UK and Germany

Carys Roberts (May 2017): Politics in most countries are still very much dominated by men, which leads to a democratic deficit, as half of the population is not properly represented in local, regional or federal governments. The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung London and the Institute for Policy Research (IPPR) published a report that compares the representation of women in the various governments in the UK and Germany. It does not only compare figures but highlights helpful examples from which countries could learn from each other. The research shows that political parties have a crucial gate keeper role in ensuring gender equality in the political arena.
