Students will first have to demonstrate knowledge of the basic concepts of the course, the processes of historical transformation that have affected the constituent elements of welfare and the different models of relationship between state and market in Europe, as well as the different configuration of these elements in some countries that will be chosen for their exemplary strength. They will also have to know how to use this knowledge to analyze some concrete cases and read the interconnections between the different cases or the different elements of the same case, in order to prefigure possible scenarios of intervention or transformation of the welfare system. In this way they will develop autonomy both analytically and critically, which will allow them to have an independent judgment on this area of social organization. The research work necessary for the preparation of the written presentation will refine their ability to select and select relevant and relevant information in the large quantity of material available on the net or in the catalog of library products.

Finally they will have to know how to support their analyzes and their arguments in front of their colleagues and the teacher, in an exchange and in-depth relationship, recognizing and correcting any errors.
