In this unit, we study public policy from three key viewpoints:
- We investigate the relationship between government and citizens, the role of policy in the lives of citizens, and contribution of different actors to the policy making process.
- We examine various areas of public policy in depth, analysing each in terms of policy development; actors; institutions; instruments; context (political, social, economic, historical); and human impact.
- We develop skills central to policy work, including preparing policy briefings and conducting policy analysis.
