There is great interest in East Asian welfare models. Many politicians in both east and west have sought out particular examples in order to underpin their own ideas for reform. But what does the East Asian welfare model actually offer, and does it in fact really exist? In this, the first broad ranging study of the subject, the authors explore the experiences of six societies in East Asia and make clear the realities behind the political rhetoric. The role of the state within the societies welfare systems is compared via case studies of pensions, health insurance, housing and personal social services. The result is the only up-to-date detailed analysis in English of how these various systems have developed and will continue to develop in the future. It will be a valuable and wide ranging resource for both students and policy makers alike.
