Last class Pauliina Seppälä (MA Social Policy) gave us a very interesting presentation dealing with some basic concepts of the nordic model of the welfare state (as context / infra / stage) and what it has to do with for social movements and social media. We discuss in particular how she sees the role of social media in re-imagining the nordic welfare model, what bits count as design (what not?) and what is missing based also on her insights gained by engaging with everyday social movements. Here a copy of her slides in PDF (NMTS-socialpolicy-seppala).
We have nice discussion and challenging thoughts where put forward: Design? Politics! Policy!
