08-26-MA5-1Public Policy in Rich Democracies (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 14:00 - 16:00 UNICOM 3.3380 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 3) (2 SWS)

The course investigates the role of governments from a comparative public policy perspective. What is the purpose of governments in the first place? And with which instruments and mechanisms can they intervene? The course is split into three main parts. First, we will discuss different forms of state intervention and reasons thereof. Moreover, we will address questions about the changing role of the state. Second, we will address theories to explain state intervention and changes of public policy-making. Why do governments implement different public policies? And why do policies change over time? Finally, we will look at different policy trajectories such as economic, fiscal, social and education policies. Students will be expected to do mandatory course reading based on books such as "Public Policy: A new Introduction" by Knill and Tosun and "The Oxford Handbook of Public Policy" by Goodin et al. To pass the course students will have to conduct independent research on a policy trajectories of their choice, present it in the form of a poster presentation, and end the course with a final exam (lengths depends on CPS).

08-26-MA7-2International Political Economy (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Mo 12:00 - 14:00 GW2 B1400 NUR Mo. + Di. (2 SWS)

Why do nations trade with each other? And what do they trade? And why do they trade what they trade? And why do they at times stay shy of trading what they could trade? And is it even sensible to speak of “nations” when speaking of trade? Questions like these take center stage in International Political Economy (IPE) as a policy field.
IPE has however also been blossoming an array of research since the 1970s, at the nexus political science and economics. In this vein, the seminar provides an introduction to IPE both from a political-science and an economic perspective.
We first look at classic and more recent theoretical accounts of the foundations, shape and limits of international trade, and its repercussions on domestic policy. We then address several core problems of IPE: international finance and debt, economic development and emerging economies, regional integration, and foreign direct investmen.

Blockveranstaltung

Einzeltermine:
Mo 14.05.18 12:00 - 18:00 UNICOM 7.4680 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 7)
Do 24.05.18 10:00 - 12:00 UNICOM 3.3380 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 3)

What knowledge does research produce and how is it used for the making and evaluation of social policies? What distinguishes empirical evidence from fake news? What’s all this talk about research methodology? Was this study representative, and does it need to be? How do I form an hypothesis and do I need to? Can I base my Master thesis on interviews?

If you’ve wondered about these questions in your past at university, this course is right for you.

The seminar will be divided in two blocks and its goal is two-fold: First it will enhance the students’ ability to analyze and understand empirical studies on social policies and the claim on knowledge making they make through training to identify and categorize research designs. We will repeat what the distinctions mean between qualitative and quantitative research tools, positivist or interpretative research designs. Secondly, and based on the needs in the seminar, we will focus on practical training in methods with a focus on qualitative methods. This shall enable students to implement empirical methods in their own papers or graduation thesis.

08-350-M5a-3Global Health Politics (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 10:00 - 12:00 UNICOM 7.4680 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 7) (2 SWS)

In most countries of the Global North functioning health systems and access to medicines is taken for granted. But in large parts of the Global South health systems depend on donor funding and access to medicines is still an unsolved problem with grave social consequences. The causes for this problem are manyfold and include poverty, limited governance capabilities, lack of infrastructure, and global trade rules that create additional obstacles to the availability of affordable medication. The course will provide a broad perspective on Global Health. It will introduce important institutions, actors and areas of conflict and will look at the structure of health systems in the Global North and the Global South in comparison. A special focus will be the contentious mobilization about access to essential medicines to fight the AIDS epidemic in sub-saharan Africa and southeast Asia.

In this course, we are reading and discussing two books of one of the foremost political philosophers of the 20th century, John Rawls. We will read the revised version of his main work “A Theory of Justice” (1999) and his book “Justice as Fairness” (2001). Thereby, we aim at gaining an in depth understanding of his work, its historical and theoretical embeddedness, and its implications.
All participants are expected to regularly and actively take part in the seminar. Active participation means that you prepare for each session by reading the mandatory literature and that you show knowledge and comprehension of the literature in the discussions by asking questions, making relevant contributions to the discussions, and reacting to the contributions of your colleagues.
Since this seminar is discourse-centred, experts’ statements in the discussions substitute presentations. Every student must be an expert in one session. This means that you are responsible to keep discussions going by answering questions or bringing in new aspects to the discussion – based on your knowledge about the chapters. These experts’ statements are accompanied by a short paper of about 4-5 pages that deals with the central statements of the chapters, the propositions of the chapters that are worthy of discussion, and a disclosure of points that are still unclear. This paper has to be sent to me by e-mail until Tuesday, 9 am before the respective session.

Further Readings:
Freema, S. (2002). The Cambridge Companion to Rawls (Cambridge Companions to Philosophy). New York, Cambridge University Press.
Freeman, S. (1999). John Rawls. Collected Papers. Cambridge, London, Harvard University Press.
Freeman, S. (2007). Rawls. Oxon, Routledge.

You can earn 4 or 8 Credit Points (1 CP = 30 hours of work). For 4 CP, you must be an expert in one session. For 8 CP, you can be either an expert and write either a seminar paper of 12 pages (without Appendix) or you write 3 short essays of 4 pages during the semester.
