This chapter argues that the transformation of social structures and that of welfare-state regimes have to be considered together. It discusses the relevance of social class analysis in the face of the fragmentation produced by changing work relations, the growth of the service sector, the expansion of the middle classes, and changes in the gender and ethno-racial composition of the workforce. The chapter also discusses the effects of urban segregation first on the cohesion of social groups and the relations between them, secondly on urban inequalities. Particular attention is paid to issues of education inequalities linked to segregation. The chapter debates the transformation of welfare regimes, showing that the analysis of the present movement of neoliberalisation has to take into consideration the complexity of scales and social forces beyond the different levels of government.
