【Course Objectives】

The aim of this class is to understand the theoretical and empirical arguments surrounding welfare state emergence, reduction, and reform by studying cases in advanced industrialized democracies, such as Japan and European nations.

【Course Contents】

Despite the fact that advanced industrialized nations face similar challenges such as globalization, post-industrialization, and an aging society, reforms to update the social protection system differ greatly among nations. This class will look into the politics behind welfare state emergence and reforms.
The first ten classes will consist of critically reading texts and conducting text-based discussions, the rest will be allocated to individual student presentations. Please be aware that some of the texts used in this class will be in English.
