Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This seminar deals with recent transformations of welfare states from a comparative perspective and with a focus on Austria. Researchers commonly state that welfare states have come under pressure due to changes, e.g., of the population structure, family and gender relationships, economic conditions, and migration. Some researchers argue that these changes will lead to severe cuts in welfare provisions. Others regard welfare states as adjustable to the new demands, but see great variation in the capacity of welfare states to adjust the new challenges. Placing Austria at the center of our attention and taking a comparative perspective, we will explore and discuss these issues in order to gain a better understanding of the transformations, constraints, and possibilities of welfare state developments. The seminar will consist of three parts: First, we will discuss the main theories of welfare states and their changes. Second, we will look at select social, economic, and political changes that pose challenges to welfare states, and third, we will examine specific policy changes and their problem-solving capacity.
The main aim of the seminar is to gain a comprehensive knowledge of prevailing theories, methods, and research findings of welfare state research, place the Austrian welfare and social policy development within a comparative perspective, and acquire skills to critically and scientifically assess Austrian and international welfare state transformations.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The requirements for a successful completion of the seminar and for the assessment are:
1. three presentations of texts
2. three discussion/questions to presentations of colleagues
3. three written texts, each 6-8 pages. These "papers" may be written in English or German.
All of these may be done in groups.
Each presentation/discussion/written paper should be on a text in one of the main blocks of the seminar. This assures that you gain comprehensive knowledge of the issues covered in the seminar.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Active participation in all sessions.
If you miss a session, you will be required to make up for it by writing a critical summary of a text/the texts that were discussed in the missed seminar.
Grades will be based on:
1/3 presentation
1/3 active participation, discussion, and comments on colleagues' presentations
1/3 written papers
I value innovative, critical, and new views on the literature rather than pure repetition of the texts.
I will provide written comments on all of your papers as feedback and will also be available for feedback outside of class.

Prüfungsstoff

presentations, discussions/questions, written papers

Literatur

A detailed plan of the seminar and the list of literature will be distributed and discussed in the first seminar session.
