AbstractIn this chapter developments in Spanish welfare concerned with policies of poverty alleviation and programs combating social exclusion are analyzed. Core areas of observation are the so-called ‘safety nets’ of social protection, which have been ‘under construction’ in Spain during the last 15 years.In the following section a review of the historical background to the development of social policies in Spain is carried out. The evolution of poverty alleviation programs is examined within the broader Spanish welfare state framework. A special reference is made on the creation of regional systems of social services and the development of programs of social assistance by both central and regional layers of government. After analyzing the compound nature of the Spanish ‘safety nets’, the third section concentrates on the latest developments and initiatives undertaken with reference to the 2001-2003 National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPSI). In the light of the Spanish experience, it is concluded that more attention is to be paid on the increasing role of regional and local layers of government. These, in concurrence with central institutions of EU institutions and of member states, are key actors in order to promote social inclusion of those precarious citizens facing poverty or social exclusion.
