Maastricht University Master's courses for Social and Public Policy, Financing, Design and Human Development: Public-Private Partnership

The global trend to overhaul and revise welfare and social protection systems further increases the need for well-qualified quantitative social protection analysts and managers. Many developing countries and transition-economies, but also some industrialized countries, do not have these specialists or managers; neither do they have access to comprehensive, concise and problem-orientated training programmes. Well-trained experts in each country would make a notable difference with respect to the development of effective social protection strategies for the extension of social protection and through good governance to the long-term viability of national social protection systems and thus to people’s long-term social security.
