This introductory chapter establishes some initial connections between the studies in the succeeding chapters by highlighting the links between nation-state social welfare and pension systems, and the roles these institutions have played in managing and mediating social and political conflicts. It relates the pension reform efforts of nation-states to the greater cause of globalisation. An overview of the studies included in this volume is presented.
