Master in Social Sciences - Comparative Public Policy and Welfare Studies (MSc) Why are some societies more unequal than others? How can we explain high levels of unemployment and soaring budget deficits? Why do women participate in the labour market in some countries, but largely stay at home in others?

The answers to these questions are all related to the welfare state.The development of the modern welfare state has profoundly transformed societies in the 20th century. In the Western World, it has laid the foundation for peace and stability and helped to establish fundamental principles such as gender equality and social mobility. More recently, Asian and Latin American countries have embraced the concept and developed ambitious welfare state programmes.Hence, all over the world welfare states fundamentally shape the functioning of societies. At the same time, they are subject to intense political conflict and exposed to multiple pressures for change.

Master in Economics and Business Administration - Regional Economics and Business Development (MSc) The focal point of the programme is the interdependence of the regional economy and business and industry.

How should firms use differences in regional settings in their choice of locating in different parts of the world?

International conflicts have changed fundamentally over the past two decades. To understand them and to manage them requires new skills, which is why we offer this new Master programme.In the old days the understanding and management of conflicts built on a fairly clear division of labor between specialists – between diplomats, soldiers, and aid experts. Conflicts could be understood according to distinct phases, moving from peace to tension over war and stabilisation to renewed peace. For each phase a particular set of specialists went to work.Today’s conflicts are multiple, complex, and volatile. They may last for more than a decade. Signs of progress are often deceptive, and outsiders involved in managing the conflict can experience war, development, and peace enforcement all in one day. It is what the military calls a three block war. To grasp it, and to help organisations prepare for it, experts must look beyond specialisations and be trained to understand and work with complex and conflict ridden environments.This Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law will train this kind of expert. It will be experts who look to the international domain, who want to work with international issues, and who will want to help solve conflicts. The programme will provide the experts with the skills to integrate a conflict’s political, juridical, and ethical dimensions in a comprehensive assessment that identifies the drivers of the conflict and what international organisations can do about them....
