Social policies of the future will have to be Green. As environmental problems multiply, and as welfare reform becomes more vital, so the debate concerning ecological social policies grows in importance. Yet what has been missing is a comprehensive review of the main questions, problems and themes that brings together the principal contributors to this debate.Environment and Welfare provides that review and so will be essential reading for all those interested in the welfare policies of the future.
Tony Fitzpatrick is Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Nottingham. Michael Cahill is Reader in the Department of Applied Social Studies at the Brighton University.
