Public Lecture: Mass Migration and Generous Welfare States. Compatible or Incompatible?
Speaker: Christian Albrekt Larsen, Aalborg University. Internationally Christian Albrekt Larsen is best known for his work on how institutions, especially universal welfare schemes, enhance public support for anti-poverty policies and social trust.
The construction of welfare states has been pivotal for securing the wellbeing of citizens throughout Western countries. Especially, the Nordic countries became prime examples of how to successfully build well-functioning welfare societies.
However, these institutional arrangements from the 19th and 20th century are faced with a new environment of increased levels of migration. This has raised a concern about the presence of a potential progressive dilemma. The argument is that progressive political forces face a trade-off between building/maintaining a generous welfare state and welcoming migrants.
