Constitutional Social Justice is an essay that was first produced as part of a report to the Commonwealth Fund of New York on the possibilities of radical reform within the welfare state in 1995.
The paper sets out a critique of the welfare state and the damage done by its many poverty traps - and it offers a model of social justice and an outline of a new approach to welfare reform.
The publisher is The Centre for Welfare Reform.
