Abstract [en]

Insuring its citizens against the misfortunes that may threaten their livelihood is the defining feature of the welfare state. The first social insurance schemes that emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were instituted to protect people in cases of work accidents, sickness, unemployment, widowhood and old age (if it occurred). By instituting such schemes, the state acknowledged that individuals were exposed to social risks conditioned by societal structures that were beyond their control (Rothstein 1994).
