gender lens and using a twofold approach : sociology and economics. Each topic will be addressed alternatively through the sociological and economic perspective. The course will present theoretical and empirical contributions and will be based on the reading and discussion of research papers that illustrate different challenges of the Welfare State. The course leaves great scope to international comparisons, mostly focused on western countries, and highlights the gendered dimensions of social policies. The ﬁrst session deals with the classiﬁcation of Welfare States and the economic analysis of Welfare State. Four sessions are dedicated to the labour market (two for each discipline) : we will discuss women's participation in the labour market, the gender gap in earnings, labour market segregation, glass ceilings and discrimination. The four following sessions will be devoted to family issues : we will describe the changes in families and the consequences in terms of family policies (such as parental leaves), as well as the gendered division of labour within the family and the market and its consequences. The two last sessions will deal with gender equality policies.
