300192 Social Policy in Developing Countries (S) (WiSe 2017/2018)

Inhalt, Kommentar

Historically social policy and the welfare state have been projects of Western and Northern European nation states, closely linked to the rise of mass democracies.
Since the 1940s, social policy has also spread in the global South, but informal and clientelist welfare prevailed. Since the 1990s, formal social security has been expanding in many countries of the South.

The seminar will deal with
• Concepts and theories of social policy
• Theories of social policy in the global South
• Social policy in low and in middle income countries (single countries, cross-national comparisons)
• Selected policy areas, like old-age pensions, social assistance, health, labour protection
• The role of international organizations and policy diffusion
• The future of social policy in the global South: spread of Northern models or Southern models?

Teilnahmevoraussetzungen, notwendige Vorkenntnisse

Required: knowledge on social policy or on global issues.

Students from the global South are particularly welcome.

Konkretisierung der Anforderungen

Requirement for participation (“Studienleistung”; 4 Credit Points):
Participants will be expected to read one article for each session. Moreover, participants are expected
• To PUT one question regarding the article, and to ANSWER one question (to be submitted till 12 o’clock on the day of the seminar), for at least 3 sessions, spread across the term. (Of course, you may put/answer more questions if you like, in order to deepen your reading of the article.)
• To submit a brief statement for at least one of the workshop sessions (see the seminar plan) and to present the statement in class.
• To submit a short reflection on the content of the seminar for the final class.

“Submit” means posting the text in the “Forum” of the Lernraum of the eKVV (internet), in the section provided for the respective session.

Requirement for examination (“Prüfungsleistung”; 6 Credit Points):
Written paper (“Hausarbeit”) (MA Sociology: 20-30 pages; MA Political Communication: 6000-8000 words). No other kind of examination is available.

Normally, to work for a requirement for examination (“Prüfungsleistung”; 6 Credit Points), you would also work for a requirement for participation (“Studienleistung”; 4 Credit Points, on top of the 6 Credit Points for the Prüfungsleistung), but legally you are not obliged to do so. Still, it makes little sense not to work for a Studienleistung, because the Studienleistung helps you to acquire the knowledge to write a good Prüfungsleistung. Basically, the Studienleistung simply means active reading of the obligatory texts for the sessions.

ERASMUS students:
The Credit Points are as stated above, as for German students. If, for whatever reason, you need a different number of Credit Points, please contact the faculty member which is in charge of academic exchanges with your country. The Examinations Office can tell you who this is.
