The emergence and development of the Portuguese welfare state and the debate on poverty and social policies are marked in Portugal, as elsewhere, by a set of social and economic dimensions, but also a set of ideological and conceptual aspects. This paper discusses the emergence of the main concepts and authors on that debate.
