SASE11 Economic Change, Labour Market and the Population, 7,5 credit points (ETCS)

The course begins with an examination of the development of Swedish labour policy in general during the post war period. Particular attention is laid on the fundamental changes that have taken place from the 1970s onwards in the functioning of the labour market, the welfare system, and the economy as a whole. The change process is examined from the point of view of those most affected by it - immigrants, women and young people. In addition to discussing the Swedish phenomenon, the problem and the potential solutions will also be compared and contrasted with similar situations in other European and North American countries.
