Lingnan’s new Master of Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy course (International) (IMCSP) incorporates a focus on the study of development issues, welfare policy initiatives and good governance.

The forces inherent in globalisation, among them increasing economic competition and social change, show the value of studying the experiences of different countries and regions as a prelude to dealing with problems and issues that many of us now face together.

“Our lives have been globalised at an unprecedented pace through social media, cross-border flows of people, and the increased interdependence of national economies,” says Dr Stefan Kühner, the Master of Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy (IMCSP) programme director, “Governments around the world increasingly encounter similar policy challenges, but the specific solutions they adopt continue to vary considerably. Comparing the social policies and politics in different locations can help us understand if a country is typical or unusual and whether it is a leader or a laggard with regard to certain aspects of government policy and in meeting globally defined goals in economic and social development.”...
