SPAIN IN THE OECD: ADVANCES TOWARDS THE WELFARE STATE

This paper analyses the contribution of the OECD to the establishment
of the Welfare State in Spain. The first section sets out the main issues under
study. The second section addresses the differences between the OECD’s
method of operation and that of other major international organisations. The
third section proposes an approach to the analysis of the OECD’s influence on
Spain, highlighting the variables that exert the greatest impact on the Welfare
State (unemployment, health, pensions, dependence and education), as well
as the general framework of economic and social policy, and of the policy of
development aid. The fourth section focuses on the evolution of the OECD
and on the impact of its recommendations on social policies in Spain. The
final section emphasises the landslide of the OECD towards the neo-liberal
paradigm, which is why its peer review processes, as well as its influence on
member countries and the vision of the ongoing process of globalisation are
increasingly similar to those of other international organisations.
