Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The text shows how managerialism related to various paradoxes and inconsistencies of the welfare state reforms interfere with new areas of uncertainty. The reforms have not solved the problems that affect the welfare state for nearly half a century, nor they increased social security and stability of welfare institutions. What’s more – the state itself creates areas of uncertainty, contributing to the strengthening of existing inequalities and social divisions. The situation in Poland does not differ in this respect from the general trends. The text is a review and refers to the U. Beck concept of “Manufactured uncertainties”.
