The end of social democracy?

John Callaghan, Sean Tunney

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article contests the idea that social democracy is dead. It is argued that a proper consideration of the evidence casts doubt on this widely held assumption. In this article, the evidence is examined in relation to post‐Fordism, class structure and solidarity, electoral behaviour, post‐materialism and the crisis of the welfare state across Europe.
