The author discusses a research proposal that will focus on the impact of globalization on Great Britain, particularly in terms of input and policy issues relating to social welfare. The author plans to study political conditions in Great Britain before and after globalization emerged in order to determine why the social welfare state developed differently in Great Britain compared to other Western European states. The author also discusses the type of source materials he/she will use.
From the Paper:"Taking this approach will enable me to determine why the social welfare state developed differently in Great Britain compared to other Western European states. In general terms, it was directly experienced by every citizen through higher taxes or social welfare economic relief as it evolved throughout Western Europe, but there was a considerable difference in social welfare policies and structure between these countries because of different political, economic, social, and cultural factors unique to each of them."
"The type of materials I plan to use will include political science, economics, history, and sociology texts, for these sources will provide information regarding the presence or absence of powerful trade union movements, the motivations of elites, the influence of external threats, the degree of social homogeneity or heterogeneity, the extent of stability or turmoil in the immediate historical context, and the cultural values and traditions of Great Britain. All of these factors influenced the rise and fall of the social welfare state in the UK, so source material focusing on the impact of these factors will have to be consulted and cited."
