In this course we will use a worldview that integrates the global with the local as we critically analyze trends and issues related to health and social welfare. Our global, comparative view will particularly be used to help us consider the underlying values and various functions of the welfare state within capitalist economies (especially the United States). In addition to gaining a comparative perspective on social welfare regimes around the world, we will examine the varied effects of globalization.
