This subject examines policy making from a number of different theoretical perspectives, introduces a range of methods and approaches to examining public policy, and develops policy design skills. It introduces students to how policy is made, through examining key theoretical models of the policy process. Methodologies, approaches and strategies for addressing contemporary policy issues are explored. The subject uses these policy models and theories, in conjunction with an introduction to methods for undertaking research and gathering evidence, to teach the political and technical skills of policy design.
