Course content

Why do bad ideas become policy and good ideas languish for years? Does democracy get in the way of policy, or is the policy profession itself anti-democratic? Governments are facing more complex demands every day. If we want to make a difference in the world, we need to understand the limits and possibilities of policy making in modern democracies.

This programme combines an understanding of descriptive and normative theory with the practice of policy analysis and our world-leading work on transnational policy-making. You will identify and analyse the main traditions of policy studies, the core concepts of policy analysis, and theories of policy change.
