This chapter talks about an analysis of the anti-poverty effectiveness of different welfare states. It focuses on both the income transfers and social policies that support maternal employment. The chapter compares three countries that belong to distinct welfare regimes: Sweden, Italy, and the liberal UK. The analysis refers to the situation during the early 1990s, as well as to the supporting empirical data.

Keywords:   anti-poverty effectiveness, welfare states, income transfers, social policies, maternal employment, welfare regimes
