Welfare Services and Urban Political Culture in Nordic countries
Since the Middle Ages, welfare services have been organized on a local level, in particular in cities. This welfare was expression for participation rights and formed thus a part of the urban fabric, which eventually changed the ways cities look like. Welfare is part of urban settings, it is inherently urban, as urbanness is the result of a spatial construction of welfare units (Castell). In 2023 and 2024 we want to organize three workshops on the history of welfare cities in the long perspective.
