GOVT 376 - Dept Sem:Glbzn & Redst:Dev Cou
How does globalization impact redistribution policies?  In turn, how does redistribution affect global market expansion? Can markets coexist with strong social policies? What are the types of redistribution strategies that governments can or should pursue concomitant with economic liberalization, and why?  This course explores these questions by analyzing the impacts of globalization upon the welfare of people in both developed and developing countries, but with particular emphasis on the latter.   The extent of government responsibility to protect and promote the welfare of citizens   under conditions of globalization has been at the center of international political economy and comparative politics debates in the last three decades.   This course will examine the impact of such changes in the context of labor, education and health, and social security policy.  We will study existing models, explore recent challenges and predict sustainable approaches for the future.
