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 addresses welfare state in the Western, i.e. European and North-American space. It does not cover particularities of welfare in other cultures. Students are expected to read one or two papers for each session and occasionally some additional materials from the media.<br>
