This graduate course should improve the theoretical knowledge of students on social policy in the present, post-industrial world. The main perspective will be placed on the concept of “welfare state regimes or models” and their practical consequences in different social policy areas, such as employment policy, pensions, family and long-term care policies and redistributive policies. These policies will be analysed in the context of the European Union countries. Attention will also be placed on emerging welfare state regimes in the Central and Eastern Europe. The course will be organised in the form of seminars, where students will actively work on topics covered in the recommended literature.
