Pietu europos geroves modelis: ispanijos atvejo problemos

Translated title of the contribution: The south European welfare model: Problems of the Spanish case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article deals with the South European welfare state model in general and the Spanish welfare type in particular and is addressed mainly to the Lithuanian reader. The author argues clearly about the distinct specific model of the South European states-not as the subcategory of continental-european corporatist-bismarckian model. He defines this model as corporatist- clientelistic type model with strong features of clientelism, patronage and large system fragmentation. The economic crisis of 2008-2010 raised an essential question about the validity and future of the Spanish model, as the social indicators deteriorated greatly during the last years. The Spanish welfare type is analysed in the article on the historical-structural basis, but the author does not make far-reaching prognosis on further welfare developments in Spain and the perspectives of this model.
