Cíle předmětu
Students taking this course will learn from the real-life examples to understand the challenges of public policy and its implementation. Topics cover different areas in which the role of government is highly important, but the policy is mostly uneducated. Particular attention is paid to policy challenges in the labor market, income poverty, migration, well-being, and sharing economy among others. The materials presented in the course are exclusively based on the recently published papers of recognized scholars.

Výukové metody
The course is organized in 12 sessions. The final exam is organized in the last week of the semester at the class. Classes have seminar format with a strong focus on class discussion and cooperative learning. We expect students to come to the classes. They are expected to participate in the class discussions and introduce the papers that they have read and also, their thoughts about them. If students miss classes not only will they not know the material, but they also deprive their classmates and lecturer of learning from them, and we lose the benefit of their contribution.
Metody hodnocení
Students are expected to attend class regularly and to prepare for the class by following the suggested readings and related materials. Grading is based on class presentation (20 points), short written assignments (2 x 8 points), class participation (2 points per class, max 24 points) and final exam (40 points).

Final grades are based on the overall score: A (more than 91 points), B (81 – 90), C (71 – 80), D (61 – 70), E (55 – 60), F (less than 55 points)
