Comparative Public Policy - POL802

This unit aims to bring together broad conceptual concerns on the interplay of politics, public policy and the economy in the modern world with the in-depth analysis of national cases. The focus will be primarily (although not exclusively) on European countries.
These are the fundamental questions that we will address: 1) what are the political, ideological and economic underpinnings of contemporary capitalism? 2) Are there one or many capitalisms 3) Does the organisation of the economy affect economic performance, politics and policy-making? The answers to these questions will be sought by studying the interaction between political and economic factors and their public policy implications.
