Governance, Power and Public Policy - POIX207

Explore policy studies and analysis by examining the process of policy making within governmental and other organisations. Questions are raised about the state in contemporary society and the distribution of power in the stages of policy development, implementation and evaluation. The unit draws on analytical literature from a variety of sources, but its empirical content is supported mainly by Australian examples. Knowledge of the institutions of Australian government is important for the unit.
