NCoE NordWel in cooperation with the Department of History, Stockholm University, and the Institute for Future Studies, Stockholm, organize an international summer school in Stockholm (Sigtuna), 21–26 August 2011.
Welfare states can be studied from a number of theoretical and methodological approaches, with various chronological perspectives and with a focus on different empirical phenomena. The aim of the summer school is to stimulate discussions across disciplines and thereby foster innovative cross-disciplinary research on the development of welfare states over time. To this purpose the Summer School bring together Ph.D. students and well-established scholars in scientific exchanges.
We invite Ph.D. students from different disciplinary backgrounds both within and outside the Nordic countries to participate in discussing the development of the welfare states, their preconditions, present status and how we ought to study them. Ph.D. Students present their papers in parallel sessions and get feedback from senior scholars and junior colleagues.
We welcome paper proposals by Ph.D. students on the themes of the thematic sessions as well as on welfare policies and welfare states more generally. Papers are selected on basis of their quality. Papers can be written from a broad historical or contemporary perspective and from disciplines such as history, social policy, sociology, political science, and political philosophy.
Participants who complete the summer school successfully are credited with 6 ECTS credits.
