The module “Public Policy” studies the normative foundations which provide the basis of, and set the goals for, public policies that seek to increase equality. It then develops and analyzes specific taxation and education policies that foster equality. Such policies are a reaction to the economic changes that we study in module “Economic Change”, and changes in social norms and political demands that we study in module “Social Change”. The legal system frames at the same time institutionally and normatively the economic development and the formation of political attitudes. Within this module, the understanding of legal concepts and provisions regarding equality of opportunity is an essential basis for proposing and introducing specific policies that seek to improve equality.
