Course description

This course introduces students to politics and public policy, using Australian and Queensland examples and evidence. The course locates public policy processes within the wider political system and introduces the basic principles of the public policy process. The focus is on what governments do in policy terms, why they do it and what difference it makes. The components of the policy process are identified and examined in the context of case studies of particular policy areas.
