THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH. It is intended for both regular and visiting (e.g. Erasmus) students. The course is designed for students with background in social sciences. It may be a bit more challenging for students with other background but they are also encouraged to join as long as they are ready to study hard. It is expected that the students in this course are ready to read ca 30 pages of English text per week. In the past, there have been both students who claimed this was the best course of their stay in Prague and students who claimed it was too difficult and required too much work compared to other courses.<br>
What is the welfare state? Why did it emerge in the 20th century and how has it developed to this day? Is it helpful or harmful? Is it growing or shrinking? Is it working fine or collapsing? These are some of the questions we will address in the course. We will also pay attention to the relation between welfare state and family, globalization, and European integration. Finally, we will talk about selected social policies, primarily in the Czech context. The course as a whole will address welfare state in the Western, i.e. European and North-American space. It does not cover particularities of welfare in other cultures. I am immensely looking forward to meeting you at the start of the upcomming semester! <br>
