John Clarke is Professor of Social Policy at the Open University, where he has worked for more than 25 years on the political and cultural struggles involved in remaking welfare states. He has a particular interest in the ways in which managerialism and consumerism have re-shaped the relations between welfare, states and nations. He is currently working with an international group on a project called Disputing Citizenship. His books include Changing Welfare, Changing States (Sage, 2004); Creating Citizen-Consumers (with Janet Newman and others, Sage, 2007) and Publics, Politics and Power: remaking the public in public services (with Janet Newman, Sage 2009).
