Among the principles of social insurance as laid out in the Beveridge report are flat-rate benefits and contributions as well as adequate and comprehensive benefits. Spain’s modern welfare state is comparatively new, dating back to the Socialist Party’s period of office after the end of the dictatorship of General Franco in 1975. Traditionally, the Catholic Church had played an important role in welfare provision in Spain. Welfare was to a high degree occupationally segregated and designed to support patriarchal family structures and the authoritarian state (Almeda et al.
2002; Hicks et al. 2003; Bonoli 1997; Rehm et al. 2001). Esping-Andersen’s welfare regimes are based on historical developments and political, societal and economic conditions. He explicitly delimits his typology from earlier conceptualisations (compare, for example, Titmuss 1974) by stating that welfare state results and not merely social expenditure should form the centre of the typology. ). The criteria used to classify welfare states are decommodification potential and the welfare state as a system of stratification.
More recent developments pursue a more multidimensional approach and, amongst other things, also take into account labour supply as well as state actions and institutional features. Peck (1996), for example, emphasises the labour market segmentation imposed by the household division of labour between the male ‘breadwinner’ and the female care-taker with a marginal labour market role at the most. The ‘gendered division of labour’ not only applies to women in this specific household constellation but by way of employer’s discrimination or anticipation to all potential mothers.
