Social and Public Policy

Social and Public Policy is a discipline of applied social sciences that draws on sociology, political science, and political economics, and contributes to identifying and mitigating social problems. The discipline critically addresses a wide range of socio-political issues; from social security, social equality and welfare, to current problems emerging from culture and the environment.
