The Social Policy of the Center-Left Government

The year 2007 was an important test bed for the social policy of the center-left government, the fundamental nature of which was revealed in the legislative activity related, either directly or indirectly, to the 2007 and 2008 budgets. In this chapter, we review the principal measures taken and seek to assess both their significance and the coherence of the general policy design that they embody. A number of criteria (e.g., housing, pensions, measures related to unemployment, the status of families, health care, and social benefits) can be employed to evaluate social or welfare policies. The first criterion, however, is whether the government's actions are consistent with the objectives that it set itself at the beginning of its mandate. In this context, it is particularly important to assess the factors that conditioned welfare reform, among which the constraint of public finances is generally significant. In this sense, it is important to try to distinguish the objective factors from those attributable to contrasting viewpoints that existed within the different strands of the center-left coalition.
