Learning objectives
The course aims at providing the fundamental analytical tools for the study of social protection systems in a comparative perspective.

It analyses welfare state development, since the origins in the XIX century until the recent phase of crisis and reform, by focusing on its exogenous and endogenous determinants.

Particular attention is paid to how the interaction between institutional arrangements ("structures") with political and social actors ("agency") contributes shaping social policies in multilevel - European, national, sub-national - and multi-stakeholder arenas.
