Evaluating Welfare-State Convergence with Dyadic Analysis: Social Policies are Increasingly Similar, but Only in the EU

Jason Beckfield is Professor of Sociology at Harvard University. His research investigates the institutional causes and consequences of social inequality. Currently, he is working on three projects: (1) a book about economic inequality in the European Union; (2) a monograph and a series of journal articles that develop an institutional theory of stratification, with a substantive focus on population health; and (3) collaborative publications, many co-authored with PhD students, that investigate long-term trends in the development of political economy.
