ABSTRACT

The constitutional law is to some degree an open norm which is to be filled in accordance to the fact, value and their changes. This requires the interaction of the constitutional law with the social science. The latter furnishes the former with the materials which come out to be the constitutional norm. This is the very case in the welfare state principle. It is so because the welfare state principle gives in the positive constitutional law nothing about the concrete institutions necessary for it to be realized. This article aims to give some criterion on which the welfare state principle can be formed systematically and in accordance with the epochal challenge and response. It comprises; (1) the nature and function of the welfare state, (2) the origin and types of the welfare state, (3) the generalization of the welfare state, (4) historical development of the welfare state with its problems as well as the reaction upon them. This article tries to crystallize typical problems and solutions that can be observed in the each epoch. So is expected that some criterion achieved through the comparative and historical research offer some directions to our forming of the welfare state.
