Nachhaltigkeit in der kantonalen Sozialpolitik

Ruth Lüthi

Swiss Journal of Economics and Statistics (SJES), 1999, vol. 135, issue III, 273-281

Abstract: A social policy pursuing sustainability has first to focus on the development of individuals. They have to be encouraged to develop the competencies, which will enable them to become autonomous. Such a policy strikes at the root of the problem. It comprises the promotion and the development of humans to become socially responsible persons and pursues their integration into society. Since all do not have the same chances, solidarity, as a social compensation between young and old, between ill and healthy, between the economically strong and weak, is a cornerstone of social policy. This fact must be taken into consideration in economic and educational policy as well.
