Social Protection: Policies, Programmes and Evidence (Short Course) IDS
Certificate; Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton Social protection has become part and parcel of the development response and has been acknowledged as one of the great successes in development policy. Its prominence is likely to rise even further in light of the post-2015 development agenda and an increasingly uncertain world with increasing inequality and volatility.
This course provides a broad-based overview of main approaches to social protection, issues around design and implementation, available evidence and ‘hot topics’ in social protection.
It is organised around three main themes, namely(1) Building a knowledge base on social protection;
(2) Designing and implementing social protection programmes; and (3) Evidence of what works in social protection. The programme will be complemented with sessions on topical issues, which may include social protection and graduation, politics of social protection and child-sensitive social protection.

The primary objective of the programme is to support ongoing research on the political, economic and institutional aspects of
development cooperation (aid) and aid effectiveness. This research may take place in university settings, but also in policy oriented settings such as NGOs, think tanks, aid agencies, etc. Next, the programme wants to contribute to the creation of a sustainable research network on aid so as to enable knowledge exchange on the topic of aid effectiveness, and cross fertilization between academic and policy oriented arenas of research.
Type of recognition: The POLEC-AID programme is funded by the Erasmus Life Long Learning Programme, the European Association of Development Institutes and Training Centres (EADI) and the Institute for Development Policy and Management (IOB)

Aktuelle Entwicklungsdebatte – Die Frage der Politikkohärenz, 08.05. – 10.05.2019
ETH Zürich, Centre for Development and Cooperation (NADEL) Der Kurs «Aktuelle Entwicklungsdebatte» setzt sich 2019 mit der Frage der Politikkohärenz für nachhaltige Entwicklung auseinander. Die globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele (SDGs) können nur erreicht werden, wenn internationale, nationale und lokale Politikbereiche kohärent zueinander agieren. Die Realisierung der Ziele der Schweizer IZA ist nur möglich, wenn ihre Massnahmen und Instrumente nicht durch andere Politikbereiche unterlaufen werden. SDG 17 fordert eine Verbesserung der Politikkohärenz für nachhaltige Entwicklung. Ist diese Forderung realistisch? Was bedeutet sie für die strategische Ausrichtung der Schweizer IZA?
- Was ist unter dem Konzept der Politikkohärenz zu verstehen?
- Wie kann Politikkohärenz gemessen werden?
- Welche Zielkonflikte können in den Bereichen Migrationspolitik, Agrarpolitik, Umweltpolitik, Handelspolitik, Finanzmarktpolitik und Sicherheitspolitik identifiziert werden?
- Wie soll und kann mit diesen Zielkonflikten umgegangen werden?
- Was bedeutet die Debatte der Politikkohärenz für Schweizer IZA Akteure?
