Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The basic elements of public administration sociology will come from examples to make students understand their analytical utility in disparate cases. In addition to understanding the concepts, the ability to link concepts in the vertical sense is required to understand the evolution of processes and horizontally in order to compare institutions and contexts of different countries. Understanding should also show the learner's ability to distinguish between ideal types and concrete cases and to highlight the common features of different cases and the elements of their differentiation. The illustration of the various physiognomies of the central bureaucratic apparatus of Italy, Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America will have to develop in the student the conceptual comparative and modeling ability that will increase his autonomy of judgment and abstraction abilities Of reference to concrete cases. Lesson papers and some moments of collective reflection will be aimed at stimulating your ability to compare with peers and oral exposure. The exercises will be designed to develop its synthesis skills and conceptual connection in writing
