Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the conceptual and methodological bases useful to analyze welfare systems in advanced economies as well as their transformations since the postwar era outlining the future prospects. In particular, it will provide the conceptual and methodological bases to analyze the processes of convergence / divergence and the different welfare state models in Europe with particular attention to the regional dimension and how this has changed since World War II to today. The analysis will consider various policies (retirement, health, social assistential, labor, etc.).

Program

The course is divided into two parts. The first provides an analysis of the different definitions of the welfare state and welfare systems, and the different methodologies used to investigate the characteristics. The second addresses the issue from a historical viewpoint, reconstructing the main steps of the process of institutionalization of social policies. The second will be highlighted the debate on convergence and divergence in welfare systems, trying to bring out the processes of re-territorialization of social policies in Europe. In particular we will analyze the transformation of the territorial dimension of social needs considering some policies specifically (eg labor, social assistential, retirement, etc ....) and the question of social spending and its territorial implications.
