Syllabus:

The course examines social policy and citizenship in Australia from the perspective of the social sciences. It focuses on the historical and contemporary constructions of Australian citizenship and how these constructions both are shaped and impacted by social policy. A key focus will be the representation of contemporary public issues within a social policy framework drawing attention to the ways different knowledges of the social sciences understand public issues and how these issues are in turn constructed in policy. The course also examines emerging debates on the social, political and economic definitions and re-definitions of citizenship. Current debates in the broad areas of power relations, political and social rights and the future of welfare policy in an era of globalisation and economic uncertainty are examined. A selection of case studies drawing on current research will be used to provide a framework for understanding social policy and citizenship dimensions in Australian society. This course has an applied focus through which students study the policy process and develop policy analysis skills.
