Abstract

The present paper examines the politics of pension reform in Southern Europe, by focusing in particular on the politics of reform in Greece, Portugal and Spain. The presence of a number of common features relating to their socio-economic structures and welfare state development has resulted in the categorization of Southern countries under a separate model or in their identification as distinct clusters of Esping-Andersen’s (1990) state-corporatist model.

Keywords: South welfare states, Welfare types, Greece, Portugal, Spain
