Topics in Jewish, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies

JEWISH, ISLAMIC AND MIDDLE EAST STUDIES 390

In Israel, two central tensions impact social policy: The first, between a welfare state and a neoliberal policy regime, and the second, between a Jewish state and a democratic state. In this course we will delve into these two tensions and use them as our analytical framework for understanding social policy in Israel. Through various examples such as health, education and employment, we will widen our understanding of social policy and familiarize ourselves with current policy debates in Israel. This course is intended primarily for sophomores and juniors. The topic of this course varies by semester, dependent on faculty and student interests.
