In the Spanish Constitution´s first article, de country is defined as a “social and democratic State of Law”. The rotundity displayed by that wording showed a commitment, sensitivity and a social vocation of origin in our Constitution. In recent times, the economic crisis and the resulting political scenario have called into question the support and guarantees that made the welfare state possible. In the course that we present here, we would like to address this problem, starting from the most general assumptions to more specific cases. To do this, this Summer Course will be organized around three sessions in which specific areas of action and reflection are addressed, concluding in the issue of minimum income.

Recipients: Social Sciences, Law, Humanities, Psychology, Social Work, or related disciplines, graduates, students, educators, members of NGDOs and social organizations in general.
