ABSTRACT

The welfare state has been growing and spread all over the world since the end of the 19th century. The constitutional law and various conception of the equalities and justices have contributed to this development. The social rights have been recognized as a core of the human rights. The participatory democracy has been advocated. The principle of the general election was followed by the welfare politics. The idea of the equality was made sensitive in the welfare production. Justices should be realized in various fields and dimensions. As a result of theses development the range of the social risks has been enlarged. And the social risks came to have new contents. The growth of the welfare states during the 50s and 60s has been enhanced by the political, economic and international environments. The welfare states experienced the new shaping. That is; The welfare production is no more subordinate to the economic order, but is formed as a self-establishing system and situated in the political structure. That means that the welfare states are now irreversible. But this brought the political burden in the sense that the welfare production developed to the forum of conflicting interests on the base of the various norms as well as ideas. This burden gave new tasks to present the core criteria in the age of the retrenchment.
