The aim of the course is to look at the critical role of international social policy and revisit nation state social policies with the comparative perspective necessary to emphasize local relevance and global interdependence. The student will question and analyze the need to redefine social policy in the international context. Value base and political belief structures of social policies are fundamental to policy formulations and their practices in the form of social services and other related features of policy making. Recognizing the importance of young people in the demography of nation states, the rationale for the social policies related to issues of development of children, adolescents and youth are discussed. Questions and different perspectives on how to reduce gender discrimination, class, and ethnicity and race barriers in bridging the gap in opportunities through social policies shall be addressed. Evidence based researches will encourage discussion on national and international implications of policy positions.
