Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter outlines the background to thinking about rights in social policy.1 It explores the apparent intensification of concern with responsibilities over the last decades and, in this context, highlights how New Labour, in particular, developed some of their key social policies in relation to parents and their responsibilities. The chapter discusses the gendered implications of such policies and the perspectives of some of those seeking to rethink rights and responsibilities and their relationship.
