A book written by WelCond project early career researchers will be out on 27 February. Published by Policy Press, the collection is edited by WelCond Director Professor Peter Dwyer.

Dealing with welfare conditionality: implementation and effects considers how conditional welfare policies and services are implemented and experienced by a diverse range of welfare service users across a range of UK policy domains including social security, homelessness, migration and criminal justice.

The book showcases the insights and findings of a series of distinct, independent studies undertaken by early career researchers associated with our ESRC funded project. Each chapter presents a new empirical analysis of data generated in fieldwork conducted with practitioners charged with interpreting and delivering policy, and welfare service users who are at the sharp end of welfare services shaped by behavioural conditionality.

This is the second in our WelCond series of books. The first, Welfare Conditionality  by Beth Watts and Suzanne Fitzpatrick, is available from Routledge.
