Summary

The MSc Comparative Public Policy provides intensive analytical training in the systematic comparison of social and public policies from an international perspective.

It helps develop substantive knowledge in a wide range of policy fields around topical issues such as:

  • policy evaluation

  • policy learning

  • policy transfer

Amid the ongoing global public policy challenges, we offer the ideal environment in which to observe contemporary public policy developments and learn from diverse international experiences.

What will I learn?

You’ll focus on variation in national policy patterns within and beyond Europe, with a view to understanding how and why nations differ in their social and public policies and what they can learn from each other’s experience in key contemporary policy concerns, including:

  • labour market

  • work-life balance

  • health

  • social care

  • inequality and welfare issues

  • education policy

  • child-oriented policy and practice
