PPOL-796-10 LOBBYING & GOVERNMENT RELATIONS
Spring for 2017-2018
PPOL 796-10: LOBBYING & GOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS. The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees Americans the right “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” In fact, public policy advocacy, or lobbying, is a key component of the functioning of American government and is as old as our republic. This module will focus on advocacy in the public policy process: the rules that govern lobbying activity, tactics of successful lobbying, how decision-makers deal with advocates, and how advocacy plays out and impacts public policy in the Legislative and Executive branches of the federal government. (1.5 credits, 1st module).
