Program description

The objective of this course is to provide financial analysts in the social protection sector with a methodological toolbox for sound resource management in social protection.

In any society, social transfers account for a substantial part of national income. Distributive machines of this scale should be designed and operated with the utmost care to pursue the realization of socially, economically and fiscally optimal results. The focal point of social protection systems is to alleviate situations that put people under (financial) strain. In this context, society is often confronted with the question: Is there anybody too poor to share? Within this course, present and future financial planners as well as decision-makers are equipped with the tools for good financial, fiscal and economic governance of national social protection systems. Furthermore the course outlines ways to assist in policy processes that define desirable levels and scope of social protection in a given country.
