Course Introduction

This programme uses contemporary gender theory to investigate social policy, planning and practice in an international and comparative context and to examine gender and social policy with an emphasis on the issues facing either less economically developed or European countries. The course provides advanced study in the application of gender theory to social policy, planning and practice. It aims to give students a grounded understanding of the concepts and theories relevant to a gender analysis of social policy in a global and comparative context. The teaching will focus on stimulating independent thought on gender and gendered inequalities.
