Just how common is benefits stigma in Britain?

Inequalities

To (loosely) coincide with my paper on benefits stigma coming out in the Journal of Social Policy, I’ve written a short summary on the LSE Politics and Policy blog. (Long-running readers of the blog will see that this is a developed version of the earlier report that I did with Kate Bell and Declan Gaffney in 2012 – you get bonus points for spotting how the analysis has changed between versions…).  I’ve also written a further blog post here on Inequalities, called ‘Are there neighbourhoods where benefit claims aren’t stigmatised?’ 

It’s been a while since I’ve been regularly posting on the blog, but I’ll also be posting in the coming months on some other work I’ve been doing on benefit myths – so watch this space.
