Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews the growing body of scholarly literature on welfare regimes in developing countries. Many studies in this research program explicitly or implicitly draw on the approaches and methods of historical institutionalism. However, the authors argue that a true appreciation of the origins and transformation of welfare regimes in developing countries calls for more extensive and systematic applications of the methods and approaches from the historical institutionalist toolkit and should incorporate greater attention to the role of non-state actors in the welfare mix.

Keywords: welfare regimes, authoritarianism, state-building, non-state welfare provision
