Social Welfare in Post-Soviet Armenia: From Socialist to Liberal and Informal?

Social Welfare in Post-Soviet Armenia: From Socialist to Liberal and Informal? A drastic shift from strong social citizenship rights to a liberal, privatized, informal welfare model took place in post-Soviet Armenia. Drawing on the Armenian National Statistical Service's 2005 Integrated Living Conditions Survey and research conducted by the Armenian government and international agencies, this article evaluates the system of social welfare in post-Soviet Armenia. It identifies the direction of social policy reform during the transition, considering welfare institutions, levels of social provision, and outcomes. The roles of the labor market, the state, and the informal sector in delivering social welfare are discussed. The Armenian welfare system is classified in terms of current conceptual frameworks for welfare systems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Post Soviet Affairs Taylor & Francis
