By Sassan Gholiagha

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Soziales method, Sozialstruktur, Klasse, Schichtung, observe: 1,7, Universität Osnabrück (Fachbereich Sozialwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Sozialstrukturen gegenwärtiger Gesellschaften II: Soziale Strukturen in der ecu I, 23 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In der hier vorgelegten Arbeit soll das Wohlfahrtsstaatsmodell von Esping-Andersen dargestellt
und kritisch analysiert werden. Zunächst soll in einem kurzen Abriss der grundlegende
Aufbau von Esping-Andersens Modell dargelegt und mit Hilfe des in der Lehrveranstaltung
erarbeiteten fabrics überprüft werden. Im Teil der exemplarischen Länderdarstellungen
wird der Schwerpunkt auf die Bundesrepublik Deutschland gelegt und der unter der Regierung
Schröder begonnene Umbau der sozialen Sicherungssysteme genauer dargestellt werden.
Diese paintings der Darstellung hat der Autor gewählt, um die Grundlage für die Entwicklung nationalstaatlicher Lösung am Beispiel der Bundesrepublik Deutschland eine Grundlage zu schaffen. In einem Exkurs soll es dann um Risiken und Chancen von Modellen in der vergleichenden Politikwissenschaft gehen, bevor dann Alternativen für den Wohlfahrtstaat aufgezeigt werden. Dies soll zum einen anhand einer Skizze für einen gesamteuropäischen Wohlfahrtsstaat, zum anderen anhand nationalstaatlicher Lösungen (wie schon oben erwähnt am Beispiel der BRD) gemacht werden.
Der Schwerpunkt wird hier auf Deutschland gelegt, da der Autor zum einen der Ansicht ist,
dass eine detaillierte Darstellung Deutschlands eine gute foundation für Vergleiche jeglicher Art
mit anderen europäischen und nicht-europäischen Wohlfahrtsstaaten bietet. Zum anderen arbeitete sowohl die frühere Regierung Schröder als auch die heutige Große Koalition
(CDU/CSU/SPD) unter Bundeskanzlerin Merkel auf einen Umbau des Deutschen Wohlfahrtsstaates hin zum Sozialstaat im Sinne des Grundgesetztes (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung 2004: fifty nine) hin. Somit erscheint eine detaillierte Darstellung aus sozialwissenschaftlicher Sicht besonders interessant. Abschließend soll mit in der Perspektive ein Blick in die Zukunft der europäischen Wohlfahrtsstaaten geworfen werden, die auch unter der Globalisierung und neoliberaler Wirtschaftsausrichtung bei gleichzeitig schwachen Volkswirtschaften zu leiden haben. Im Fazit soll dann noch mal zusammenfassend die Fragestellung dieser Arbeit beantwortet werden, die lautet:
Sind die bisherigen Modelle von Wohlfahrtsstaaten noch richtig, welche Alternativen sind für
Wohlfahrtsstaaten im 21. Jahrhundert möglich und besonders: Welche Reformen und Ansätze
sind für die Bundesrepublik Deutschland möglich?

Download Alle, nicht jeder: Einführung in die Methoden der Demoskopie by Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann,Thomas Petersen PDF

By Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann,Thomas Petersen

Allein mit der Beobachtungsgabe können wir die soziale Wi- lichkeit nicht wahrnehmen. Wir müssen uns mit Geräten aus- sten, die unsere natürlichen Fähigkeiten verstärken, so wie es für die Beobachtung der Natur längst geschehen ist. Umfragen sind ein solches Hilfsmittel, seit dem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts mühsam methodisch entwickelt, mit eigen- tigen Verzögerungen, gegen beharrliche Widerstände. »Die empirische culture der Erforschung von Meinungen und Einstellungen begann – recht bescheiden – in Deutschland«, schrieb der Pionier der modernen Sozialforschung Paul 1 Lazarsfeld. Aber die culture der deutschen Umfragen des 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts warfare völlig abgerissen und so intestine wie vergessen, als nach 1945 Bevölkerungsumfragen in Deutschland wieder aufkamen. guy hielt sie für eine ameri- nische Erfindung. Das neue Beobachtungsinstrument wurde kaum mit Freude begrüßt, nicht als Fortschritt menschlicher Erkenntnismögli- keiten gepriesen. Es weckte Unbehagen. guy wunderte sich, warum plötzlich überall Umfrageergebnisse erschienen, in Z- tungen und im Rundfunk, in den politischen Reden ebenso wie in den Geschäftspapieren der Firmen. Zeitweise dachte guy, es sei eine Mode. Heute sind Umfragen aus dem politischen und dem Wi- schaftsleben und aus vielen anderen Bereichen nicht mehr w- zudenken. Doch das Mißtrauen in der Öffentlichkeit ist gebl- ben.
