Example text

In Germany the new Social Code II, codifying the means-tested Unemployment Benefit II, has turned out to be legally badly constructed, causing a high degree of insecurity and incomprehensibility, and exploding caseloads at the social courts. Also, the reliability and legality of administrative acts and rules and regulations, criteria of ‘good democratic governance’, were not sufficiently respected. The lack of clarity of the legal texts and the problems that occur when it comes to legal claims illustrate this issue.

But we also know that solidaristic attitudes are even more pronounced in wealthy societies or social groups (Larsen, 2008) and can be considered as a reflection of the commitment to social rights as a collective good and basic egalitarian value.

Marshall, the politics of social policy is not solely about defending individual entitlements or protecting the weakest for functional reasons but represents an acrimonious political battle about the definition of the collective good of social rights (Marshall, 1963).
