- This review aims to portray the real face of existing studies that use methodologies of political science to analyze the welfare state. By choosing three basic questions (First, how should different kinds of welfare states be categorized? Second, what are the factors that make up the character of each welfare state? Third, what is the tendency of welfare states’ development?) as key points, I have divided this review into two parts to show the generally accepted definition tools, methodologies, and research tendencies in this area of study. The first part of this study concerns differences in methodologies, and the second part examines differences in conclusions. In addition to providing a clear and comprehensive overview of existing studies on welfare states, this paper uncovers a source of conflict in contemporary welfare studies and shows their advantages and disadvantages.
