Show Summary Details


This chapter deals with the period spanning the late 1960s and early 1970s as a period of critique in which the relationship between social reality and social democratic ideology was fundamentally questioned. This debate of the late 1960s was a major break with the relative consensus around social policy in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and social policy, particularly the policies directed at groups within social welfare and social services, became a core ideological issue for the Swedish Social Democratic party (SAP).

Keywords: social democracy; social policy; social welfare; social services; Swedish Social Democratic party; SAP
