Comparative Politics of Health Policy

This course focuses on health systems in established welfare states and asks how we can understand the causes and consequences of health system variations. Specific topics include health financing, the role of institutions, interests, ideas and timing in shaping health policy, and theories of retrenchment. The course combines theoretical perspectives on comparative politics that are particularly relevant to health policy with more applied questions of policy evaluation and reform.
