SCLG6910 - Social Policy International Perspectives

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Gyu-Jin Hwang


This unit explores various ways in which social policy develops and is understood in an international context. First, it explores the reasons for welfare and examines whether globalisation has undermined or provided unforseen opportunities for welfare state development. The second part is designed to be more explicitly concerned with the specific social policy development in different countries, followed by exploring the role of transnational actors. The unit concludes by discussing the new ideas in shaping the future of social policy.
