Universalising Socioeconomic Security for the Poor

Executive Master Class

The Universalising Socioeconomic Security for the Poor (USS) programme explores the concept of socioeconomic insecurity and its causes, as well as different approaches and options for intervention, using a diverse range of cases and the student’s own experiences as illustrations.

The programme includes a 5-week study visit to India to gain field exposure to two different approaches to the universalisation of socioeconomic security: the movement-led approach of the Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) in Gujarat and the state-led approach pursued in Kerala. This programme is offered in collaboration with the SEWA and the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) in Kerala. Please check the website for more information.
