What constitutes policy? When and why are policies made? What kinds of policies are made and how? This course lays out the framework of the policy process to facilitate understanding, evaluation, creation and reformulation of policies. It engages advocates, analysts, officers, stakeholders, and curious to establish clear arguments and stances. It also challenges each to go beyond their respective comfort zones to explore, develop, and document new skillsets for interacting with the others.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Appraise and defend policy typologies and clarify the problem of competing values in defining “good” policies or outcomes;
- Differentiate and evaluate policy-making models and appraise how policy outcomes are achieved under the different models.
- Evaluate and recommend how stakeholders may develop “bargaining chips” in the areas of technical, economic, political, or administrative in order to pursue interests and policies;
- Develop and create a new policy typology that engages multiple stakeholders towards “good” policies or outcomes;
- Develop and create a new policy-making model that engages multiple stakeholders towards “good” policies or outcomes;
- Evaluate and recommend experiential research-led learning associated with developing, explaining, and recommending policy typologies and policy-making models.
