The purpose of this paper is to critically review trends of empirical studies on welfare support attitudes focusing on the relationship between welfare institution and individuals in advanced capitalist countries. The early stages of welfare attitudes are limited because these studies cannot include changes of welfare state itself. This study applied definition of these changes as 'Activation Turn', which is seen in utilizing civil organizations in welfare provision and strengthening workfare such as job training and employment support. In addition, this paper examined the correspondents between 'Activation Turn' and the research trends of welfare support attitude. The result of this is that some studies on attitudes of welfare state support was based on social capital as a source of civil society and active labor market policies to encourage participation in the labor market. However, it shows that there is an issue in considering how to implement the politics of public support while the welfare state was undergoing 'Activation Turn'.
