New courses on gender equality and human rights

Are you interested in learning about the effects of Nordic gender equality politics? Or about the development of human rights? The UiS now offers new courses that cover these topics.

Nordic models for gender equality and welfare is the name of two different courses for bachelor and master students. They will give an overview of how the Nordic countries work for gender equality and how this policy area is linked to family policies, work-life policies, social policies and in general the Nordic welfare state regimes.

The courses will study variations amongst the Nordic countries, and give a critical approach to what results the policies have for the Nordic societies. They will also focus on the current challenges for gender equality in Norway.
