Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


The thesis examines: how does the construction of the unemployment benefit system challenge the affiliation to the commune unemployment insurance scheme and what future consequences can it have for the unemployment benefit system in a welfare state perspective?
Initially, the thesis employs a philosophical hermeneutic approach as philosophy of science. Subsequently, the thesis implies four interviews with postgraduates involved with the unemployment benefit system. These paved the way for the outcome of the thesis trough a theoretical foundation rooted in; Esping-Andersen and Greve’s theories and research of the Danish welfare state and furthermore Jodie Dean’s theory of solidarity.
Further the thesis found that the current unemployment benefit system needs a reconstruction in order to secure the future affiliation of the postgraduates whom the welfare state depends upon. This is due to a change in the understanding of solidarity. To accommodate this the thesis presents a possible reconstruction of the system presented as a model. It applies the postgraduates’ preferences and considerations of a future system based on the elements: individuality and flexibility.
Thereby the thesis concludes that compliance of the postgraduates’ wishes of a future model will result in a questionable future of the welfare state model.
