  2. 2. Understödets rationalitet. En genealogisk studie av arbetslinjen under kapitalismen

    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; public poor relief; wage labour; industrial capitalism; genealogy; workfare; governmentality;

    Sammanfattning : Through a genealogical examination of how public poor relief was problematized in Sweden 1847–1875, this thesis aims to outline the assumptions and premises that underlies the contemporary predominant neoliberal argument that public relief needs to be made harder to access in order to restore the so-called “work strategy” (arbetslinjen). A second objective is to identify how conditions for public poor relief were regulated, problematized and legitimized in relation to (wage) labour in Sweden, and to detect how poor relief was handled locally in the municipality of Gothenburg during the middle of the 19th century, a period when industrial capitalism was on the rise.

In this paper we use a rich set of register data covering the entire working age population in a Swedish municipality to study how the introduction of mandatory activation programs aimed at unemployed welfare participants affect the probability of entering and exiting welfare.
