This article seeks to contribute to the discussion on the current state of knowledge with regard to the clustering of European welfare states, especially the Mediterranean countries. We want to demonstrate that the reforms be carried out well, to varying degrees, over the period 1990-2006 may have contributed to a reclassification of some countries. To this end, we analyze the positioning of ten Western European countries in 1990 and 2006 based on the two bidimensional classifications of Bonoli (1997) and Kautto (2002). Our results show some interesting changes in the positioning of some countries that seem to confirm a trend of convergence. Key words: welfare regimes, social policy, welfare reforms, longitudinal analysis
