I teach public policy with a focus on the welfare state in the high-income countries of the OECD. In particular, I compare social policy in the United States and Europe. The programs, context, politics, and even use of the term welfare vary widely across countries. In my teaching, I emphasize the roles of actors and institutions in shaping the contemporary welfare state, and the political, social, and economic outcomes arising from welfare state structures. Below, you will find information on some of the core courses I teach. Please shoot me a line here to tell me about your interest in the topic or to request a copy of the syllabus.
