Cíle předmětu
This course aims to encourage students to consider what drives inequality in labour markets, from the conventional explanations relating to technological change and globalisation, to institutional approaches, which have become increasingly prominent. Students will explore how these relate to both international differences in inequality, and changes in inequality within a particular country. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of the various policies which have been implemented or could be implemented to deal with inequality. The course will particularly explore the role of education and skills policy in reducing inequality, and challenge students to consider whether these policies are likely to have positive results.
