Spring for 2017-2018
A key component in the study of public policy is the ability to work through how it gets put into action. Successful policy implementation requires more than technical policy analysis; it requires a critical understanding of the underpinnings of good management and governance. This course uses theoretical concepts, case study materials and simulations to introduce students to the difficulties of public management in the international realm. We will focus specifically on the challenges facing less developed countries as well as the options and resources available to effectively implement policies in those countries. Through class discussion, cases and a client-based management project, students will apply concepts in comparative public management to actual situations.
