Workfare volunteerism is situated at the heart of the transition from a welfare state to a ‘participatory society’ (participatiesamenleving); a new welfare architecture finalising the formation of the ‘activating welfare state’, in which citizenship is defined in terms of duties and responsibilities instead of rights (Tonkens 2009). Citizens claiming welfare rights are increasingly expected to ‘return the favour’. Thomas Kampen throws light on the social changes that underlie altering responsibilities for welfare clients and discusses the effects of welfare reform on their lives.
