PPOL 6085 - Social Policy in Advanced Economies

What social programs do governments prioritize? How does social policy shape behavior, and conversely, how does public opinion shape policy? This course will contrast social programs across Europe and North America by considering the welfare state broadly (e.g. how social insurance and social assistance are framed and funded) and specifically (e.g. how policies push Americans to own and Germans to rent).
