Social Policies & Pragmatic Tolerance in Amsterdam

How are policy making efforts aimed at creating inclusive, just, safe and lively cities projected onto the urban landscape? This undergraduate summer programme challenges students to explore the dialectics between a variety of social policies and the planning, design and experience of Amsterdam.

The interdisciplinary programme focuses on how social policies impact the city on the ground, taking Amsterdam and its public spaces, neighborhoods and new urban developments as an illustrative case. Over the course of three weeks, a wide range of subjects from social housing and gentrification to contested public space and bottom-up development will be addressed by various guest lecturers and educational site visits.

Great summer experience

10/10

It's a fantastic summer program. Professors gave us interesting lectures and provided us with basic knowledge of the social policy in Amsterdam. The most amazing part is that we went to different sights to see what it was in reality. That's pretty easy for us to understand what the conception and idea professor taught in class.

How can this program be improved?

I would say the program is a little bit too loose from academy perspective. Most students didn't read literature after class.

My experience with the Social Policies & Pragmatic Tolerance was great! The professors were so helpful and knowledgeable about what they were teaching. The guest speakers brought in we also informational and beneficial to my learning experience. The entire experience was great! I appreciated the staff's suggestions on other excursions we could do on our own. The food was good as well. I felt like we were treated very well, both physically and academically. I would participate in study abroad again at the drop of a hat. Thank you!
