Course Description This core course explores welfare systems from a comparative perspective and analyzes the political, economic, socio-cultural, and historical factors that shape and sustain them in advanced industrialized countries. It pays particular attention to the development of key national social welfare policies, such as social security, health care, unemployment insurance, social assistance, childcare, tax expenditure, and public employment and training, and emerging best practice in these areas. The course also identifies pressing global/regional trends (e.g. greying of societies, labor market stratification, and persistent gender inequality) and compares how developed and developing countries address them through policy.
