ポリシーマネジメント(開発とヒューマンセキュリティ) (GIGA/GG)


科目名ポリシーマネジメント(開発とヒューマンセキュリティ) (GIGA/GG) [ シラバス ]

The purpose of the course is to approach human (in)security by examining the role of the state in its services to the people, the services that the state can provide and the extent to which the state services can reach out for its people. Examining risks presented to the individuals due to the lack of services and/or the limited coverage of existing services are also another focus of the course.

The role of the government (acting in the name of the state), theoretically speaking, is to design policies and offer services to its people and in return, people pay taxes in order to enjoy the services provided, that is, public goods. Depending on the extension of services it can provide can one state be considered either a night watchman state or a welfare state. How do the people carry out their daily life given the presence/absence of the protection from its state in certain area? Even where the state is involved, there is no assurance that such policies and/or services are comprehensive enough to cover everyone, or even effective for many. Furthermore, even with these problems, these policies and services may either give so little autonomy to their beneficiaries (people).

The course will use examples of health, police, education, etc as illustrations to examine how different types of states deal with each issue and how their approach influence the living of its people.

The very basic relationship between the modern state and the
