SCS235 Social Justice, Welfare and the State

From its inception the modern western welfare state has been controversial. In recent decades, debate about the appropriate role of the state in welfare has been heightened by contemporary neoliberal reforms, including privatisation, managerialism, competition policy and economic globalisation. These developments have impacted upon welfare provision and industrial relations reforms, as well as more broadly on economic policy. This course explores the domestic and international factors that have shaped the welfare system in Australia and the west more generally, with a strong focus on contemporary developments.
