    OVERVIEW

    The course belongs to the characterizing activities of the MA in Administration and Public Policies (Decisional and Organizational Processes) and is held by a Professor of the  Department of Political Sciences. The course belongs to the scientific field of Sociology of political phenomena.    

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to find the new opportunities for the involvement of groups and individuals by collective actors (both institutional and non-institutional) that emerge from the changed configuration of the collective dimension. Students who attend all classes and participate in the exercises provided during the course: a) will know the specific socio-political concepts related to the teaching focus; b) will be able to understand the transformations of relationships between individuals and collective actors (institutional and non) in contemporary societies; c) will be able to apply knowledge and understanding skills in the design and management of participatory processes (group involvement) and activation processes (individuals involvement) in concrete contexts.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of the course the student, who will have actively attended and participated in the planned activities, will be able to:
    1) define and distinguish the concepts of:
    - collective actor (association, interest and pressure group, social movement, trade union, party, institution);
    - individual actor (individual, subject, citizen);
    - participation and activation;
    - asymmetry and hierarchy;
    - authority and trust;
    2) to interpret the processes of horizontalization between individuals, groups and institutions connected to the social change of contemporary societies
    3) analyse the structuring of individual and collective actors within specific contexts
    4) evaluate the opportunities deriving from the adoption of participatory and activation processes
    5) plan in preliminary way participatory processes (involvement of groups) and activation (involvement of individuals) in specific contexts.
