International Social Policy

The course provides an introduction to comparative social policy and so to recent developments in welfare reforms from around the world. This course highlights the implications of such developments and equips students with the skills they need to understand the new challenges of the increasingly interdependent world in which we live. The course provides comparisons of the welfare models of 'developed welfare states', such as those found in European countries and explores the relevance of recent developments and debates for developing countries. The course also includes subjects that consider the future of social policies and comparative analyses, such as the module 'climate change and social policy'.
