The welfare state and Canadian federalism by Keith G Banting( Book )
22 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 579 libraries worldwide
The first edition of The Welfare State and Canadian Federalism focused on the impact of federalism on social policy during a period of economic growth and expanding social expenditures. The revised edition extends the analysis by asking how the federal syatem has shaped the social policy response to neo-conservatism, recession, and restraint. It analyses policy trends in detail; examines the implications of constitutional changes, including the Charter; and highlights the continuing role of federalism
Degrees of freedom : Canada and the United States in a changing world by Keith G Banting( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 467 libraries worldwide
"A comparative study of Canadian and American responses to the changing international economy and to changing patterns of social diversity in domestic society, Degrees of Freedom traces the impact of these pressures on the economic and social structure, culture, political institutions, and policy regimes of the two countries." "The book's primary aim is to determine whether Canada and the United States have become more similar as their economies have become more integrated and their societies more diverse. The authors conclude that although powerful economic and social pressures clearly constrain national governments and lead to convergence in some areas, distinctive cultural and political processes preserve room for distinctive national responses to important problems of the late twentieth century."--Jacket

"The essays in this volume explore the relations between the State and Society in Canada and other Western nations. They examine the extent of growth in the public sector, and investigate the economic and political forces that have contributed to it. They also reflect on the consequences of this expansion, paying particular attention to the ways in which the advent of a larger and more activist state have transformed the political system itself."--Acknowledgments

The nonprofit sector in Canada : roles and relationships ( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 195 libraries worldwide
"Governments see nonprofit agencies as an alternative mechanism for delivering public services. Activists see voluntary organizations as instruments of change. Analysts see community organizations as sources of trust and social cohesion. Despite these heady expectations, we know remarkably little about the nonprofit sector in Canada. In this book a group of scholars responds to the need for basic research in this field, exploring the scope of the nonprofit sector, the diverse roles that such organizations play, and their relationships with both government and the private sector."--Jacket

The Politics of constitutional change in industrial nations : redesigning the state by Keith G Banting( Book )
13 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 libraries worldwide
During the last two decades serious attempts to alter basic constitutional structures have taken place in many industrial nations, even in those often thought to have highly stable political institutions. In some cases, such as Belgium and Spain, far-reaching constitutional changes have been put in place; in others advocates of reform have achieved only partial victories or have been entirely frustrated. In all cases, controversy over the constitution has been intense, involving basic conceptions of legitimacy, representation, sovereignty and the purposes of the state. Constitutional politics often reveals much about political life of modern societies that is obscured in day-to-day events. The results of constitutional changes can significantly affect the distribution of power, the ability to manage conflict and the outcomes of policy debates. This book explores the dynamics of constitutional politics through case studies of Spain, Belgium, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, West Germany and Eastern Europe, including Poland, prepared by leading students of these countries. Other chapters draw out the more general patterns of constitutional politics, highlighting the pressures which lead to change, and the formidable obstacles confronting them

Belonging? : diversity, recognition and shared citizenship in Canada ( Book )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
"Diversity is one of Canada’s defining characteristics. Yet here, as in other Western democracies, diversity policies are being called into question by developments such as the growing salience of identity, race and religion. Do minorities really feel they belong to the country? Is discrimination still a reality? Is social cohesion being strained? In Belonging? Diversity, Recognition and Shared Citizenship in Canada, leading scholars from Canada, Europe and the United States explore two broad policy agendas: first the multicultural agenda, which focuses on recognizing cultural differences, helping minorities express their distinct identities and practices, and building more inclusive conceptions of citizenship; and the second, the integration agenda, which seeks to bring minorities into the mainstream, strengthen the sense of mutual support and solidarity, and reinforce the bonds of a common community."--Publisher's website

Inequality and the fading of redistributive politics ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
"All advanced democracies are facing the pressures of globalization, technological change, and new family forms, which have had the effect of generating higher levels of inequality in market incomes. But governments are responding differently, often reflecting differences in their domestic politics. The politics of who gets what and why is at the core of this volume, the first to examine this question in an explicitly Canadian context. In Inequality and the Fading of Redistributive Politics, leading political scientists, sociologists, and economists point to the failure of public policy to contain surging income inequality. In Canada, government programs are no longer offsetting the growth in inequality generated by the market, and Canadian society has become more unequal. The redistributive state is fading due to powerful forces that have reshaped the politics of social policy, including global economic pressures, ideological change, shifts in the influence of business and labour, changes in the party system, and the decline of equality-seeking civil society organizations. On one side, the organizations that speak for the economic interests of lower-income Canadians -- mobilizing resources, expertise, and attention on their behalf -- have been weakened. On the other side, changes in the distribution of power within our political institutions have made concerted action to tackle inequality more difficult. This volume demonstrates conclusively that action and inaction -- policy change and policy drift -- are at the heart of growing inequality in Canada. Governments have not responded energetically to the evidence and their indifference calls into question Canada's record as a kinder, gentler nation."--Publisher's website

Making EI work : research from the Mowat Centre Employment Insurance Task Force by Jon Medow( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
"Since the inception and design of Canada's Employment Insurance (EI) program, the Canadian economy and labour market have undergone dramatic changes. It is clear that EI has not kept pace with those changes, and experts and advocates agree that the program is no longer effective or equitable. Making EI Work is the result of a panel of distinguished scholars gathered by the Mowat Centre Employment Insurance Task Force to analyze the strengths, weaknesses, and future directions of EI. The authors identify the strengths and weaknesses of the system, and consider how it could be improved to better and more fairly support those in need. They make suggestions for facilitating a more efficient Canadian labour market, and meeting the human capital requirements of a dynamic economy for the present and the foreseeable future. The chapters that comprise Making EI Work informed the task force's final recommendations, and form an engaging dialogue that makes the case for, and defines the parameters of, a reformed support system for Canada's unemployed."--Publisher's website
