Resource description

Much literature on the public policy process focusses narrowly on the policy-making part. This unit widens the focus to examine the implementation phase, and how change happens as a result of new policies: that is, policy – action relationship. It does this by looking at four different models of how this relationship can work through examples from varying fields. The unit will be of interest to public sector managers, their staff and the general reader.
