UPWEB - Understanding the practice and developing the concept of welfare bricolage

The Welfare Bricolage project (UPWEB)will reconceptualise welfare theory through responding to the question of how all residents living in superdiverse neighbourhoods put together their healthcare. Increasing population complexity, heterogeneity and pace of change under globalisation has provoked a need to rethink welfare design, alongside issues of engagement, approachability and effectiveness. 

Partner countries
