Course content:

Welfare services are challenged to improve services by making them more oriented towards participation, social inclusion and citizenship for people in marginalized positions. The complexity in individuals` situations and contexts affect welfare services. Political and scientific discussions emphasize participation and co-creation between actors such as individuals, civil society, NGOs, private and public sectors to make social just and sustainable services and welfare. The participation and co-creation take place  at   individual, service and system levels. Relationships between participative actors at all levels are decisive in the processes of co-creation of welfare.  Participation by different actors contribute to and support the knowledge axis that deals with changing marginalized positions. Participation may increase democratic processes in co-creation of welfare services and lead to social inclusion and empowerment.   The course will emphasize relevant theoretical perspectives on participation and social inclusion.
