The Ethics of Stakeholding brings together leading academics in the fields of political philosophy and social policy to engage with one of the most exciting new paradigms in social policy. Stakeholder policies have been hailed by academics and policy-makers as one of the most promising tools for combating poverty, unemployment and inequality in modern welfare states. This collection offers a comprehensive overview of stakeholding and critically explores the ethical foundations of the stakeholder society. Keith Dowding, Jurgen De Wispelaere and Stuart White offer a comprehensive introduction to the ideas underlying stakeholding and explaining the modern debates. The contributors, including some of the leading worldwide proponents in the field, provide arguments for and against the specific types of stakeholding - capital grants versus universal basic income - and critically explore the ethical foundations of the stakeholder society.
