Опис курсу

The European welfare state, in varying forms and shapes, is one of the major achievements of the twentieth century. As a welfare state, the modern state satisfies the basic needs of its citizens and mitigates emerging risks of social exclusion by providing offerings for inclusion and participation, for example, through different forms of benefits and allowances or through the institutionalisation of a social dialogue as part of industrial relations. From a historical perspective, the welfare state functions as a safeguard against the negative effects of economic crises and political instabilities

The course will offer rich empirical insights into a variety of economic policies of the BBSR states. It will take a comparative focus on the patterns and dynamics of sustainable economic and ecological development of Baltic-Black Sea Region. It will discuss the merits and limitations of direct foreign investments in the Baltic-Black Sea Region. The course will elaborate on key aspects of the economic development of the BBSR states and critically explore different economic systems of countries of the Baltic-Black Sea Region.

Throughout the course, current challenges and new developments will be addressed in order to link the acquired knowledge to specific cases.
