Course Description: In this course various theoretical and empirical theories on individualization and social policy are discussed in lectures and tutorial meetings, with a dual focus on individualization “from below” (citizens willing – and forced by their social environment – to be independent, autonomous and unique) and individualization “from above” (governments actively stimulating and/or capitalizing on the individuality of their citizens). In addition, students are asked to select a certain policy field (education, health care, etc.) and to analyze 1) how the process of individualization has affected this policy field, 2) how in the past the present government policies have stimulated and/or capitalized on citizens’ (supposed) individuality. Students report on the analysis in a paper.
