Institutionalized Normality and Individual Living Situations. The Non-Take-Up of Old-Age Basic Income Support in Germany

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 181 - 200

Resumen

Abstract

The study analyzes the non-take-up of means-tested benefits among older people in Germany using GSOEP (2010–2015). The results suggest that 6 out of 10 do not claim benefits. To explain non-take-up the study looks at differences between individual living situations and institutionalized normality. The empirical section deals with three dimensions of the living situation: coping with financial hardship, acknowledgment of previous achievements, and temporal dynamics. While coping and temporal dynamics prove to be relevant, the results regarding acknowledgment are mixed.

Abstract

This article investigates the understudied phenomenon of secondary non-take-up (NTU) among Latino immigrants in Madrid, London, and New York City from their own perspective. It examines the reasons behind secondary NTU across the three sites and examines the relevance of type of welfare state in which they live. The findings of this paper suggest that secondary NTU is prevalent in these three sites. It identifies prejudice from social workers as the leading cause of secondary NTU among Latino immigrants.

When Multiple Implications of Non-Take-Up to Healthcare Catalyze a Critique of the Health and Social System

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 221 - 239

Resumen

Abstract

This article shows that “not chosen” experiences of non-take up to healthcare, having multiple implications for people and remaining unanswered from the social protection and health system, create a paradoxical situation. The result, among the people concerned, is a destabilization of representations of system, conducive to the construction of criticisms and reactions leading people to keep, voluntarily and by different means, at a distance from certain health and social offers.

Activation, Non-Take-Up, and the Sense of Entitlement: A Swiss Case Study of Disability Policy Reforms

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 241 - 260

Resumen

Abstract

Based on the case of the Swiss disability insurance (DI), the article questions the impact of activation on the (non-)take-up of social policies. It investigates the aim and content of activation policies (as found in official texts and discourses) and their subjective perception among recipients. Inspired by Kerr’s model and Hobson’s notion of “sense of entitlement”, analysis reveals the paradoxical outcomes of DI reforms. It underlines the importance of the subjective dimension of entitlements in the sociological understanding of non-take-up.

The Variety of Muslim Interpretations in Mass Media Public Discourses in German-speaking Switzerland

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 283 - 305

Resumen

Abstract

This article examines Muslim interpretations in the mass media public discourses in German-speaking Switzerland. It focuses on the period from the moment of the adoption of the initiative against the construction of minarets untill mid-2017. On the basis of a discourse analysis four fields of positions are presented. It can be shown that there is a considerable variety of inter-Muslim interpretations. Those positions with the highest reception are characterized by an intolerance of ambiguity and an incorporation of hegemonial interpretative patterns.

Transitions to Professional Education in Switzerland: The Influence of Institutional Characteristics of the Swiss VET System

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 307 - 334

Resumen

Abstract

Based on human capital and institutional theory, this article investigates whether transitions into professional education depend on institutional characteristics of the preceding initial vocational education and training program. The empirical analyses make use of the SLFS data. They show that vertically non­differentiated initial vocational education and training programs with high shares of vocational school and standardized final exams increase the probability to enter professional education.

A New Spirit of Capitalism? Quantitative Analysis of Swiss-German Print Job Advertisements (1955–2005) and Their Time Diagnostic Relevance

Publicado en línea: 20 Jul 2021
Páginas: 335 - 374

Resumen

Abstract

Boltanski and Chiapello put forward the thesis that the spirit of capitalism has fundamentally changed in the course of the 20th century. According to them, diligence, discipline and orderliness are no longer at the core of the new spirit, but values such as passion, authenticity or creativity. Following this line of thought, this contribution analyzes whether the qualifications required in Swiss-German job advertisements suggest the existence of such a new spirit. The results point to a revival of discipline-related qualifications and show that passion-related qualifications are not demanded as their substitutes, but rather in addition.
