(p.201) Conclusion
After the New Social Democracy

Tony Fitzpatrick

Manchester University Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on new social democracy (NSD). The book has argued that New Labour and NSD both failed to find a real alternative to the conservative hegemony and criticised the New Labour's preference for the combination of weak equality and strong reciprocity. This study has suggested that New Labour should be considered as both an effect and perpetuation of the security state and showed that the ‘old’ social democracy is not as discredited as new social democrats would have us believe. It has also proposed basic a model of ecowelfare, outlined a theory of intergenerational justice and suggested a multidimensional conception of human nature.

Keywords:   NSD, New Labour, conservative hegemony, equality, reciprocity, security state, social democracy, ecowelfare, intergenerational justice
