Emerging of the Socialist Welfare States in Serbia and Montenegro
The socialist welfare states of Serbia and Montenegro have been gradually developing in the post War period. Despite the new, Marxist paradigms, the welfare states were embeded in the previously existing social “infrastructures.” Therefore, the paper starts from the institutional theoretical framework and especially, path dependence concept, with a view to exploring the trajectory of changes in the welfare states from capitalism to socialism. The focus of the paper is on social insurance principle and welfare providers. While there was a path reproduction regarding the social insurance, there were variations regarding the welfare providers.
