Course description

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 and states 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 from the country of origin of each student.
